Robert Parker 95/100
Chateau d'Yquem is among the top 1% of all wines in the world
This is an outstanding sweet desert wine with tremendous consistency and legs as long as a giraffe. On the nose it presents with aromas of honey, pineapple, toffee, caramel, vanilla, raisin, apple and apricot. Here is a deep, golden color with a fruity sweetness that is kept in check with strong acidity. This wine pairs well with cheese and fruity desserts.
