    **One of the wines of the vintage** At our first tasting of the 2015 d’Yquem 'en primeur', we immediately knew it would rank along the epic 2001 and the reveled 2009 Chateau d’Yquem. The botrytis aromatics and perfume jump out the glass. The palate is incredibly saturated – exotic yet precise, pure, and lifted finishing incredibly balanced, so long, and in reserve. This is a singular Chateau d’Yquem and absolutely breathtaking. All purity and class.

    One of the greatest wines I have ever tasted is the 2001 d'Yquem. Upon tasting the 2015 d'Yquem my immediate thoughts were that it could rival the 2001!! Liquid gold doesn't do this wine justice, absolutely loaded with dried pineapple, apricot and butterscotch notes this powerful, almost painfully seductive wine is as smooth as it is rich. If I were on my deathbed my last wish would be for a glass of this elixir.

    This is indeed "liquid gold" We tasted it in April 2016 at Cheval Blanc and we were knocked out by its purity and seamlessness. By far the best Yquem since the glorious 2001 vintage. This may surpass it in quality. Honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, and sweet creme brulee aromas In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration. Refreshing and as perfect as perfect can be.
    Drink from 2018 to 2038
