    Often times, the same wet weather that is bad for red wines ends up being great for Sauternes. Take 1967 for example- not a banner year for reds, but a legend for Sauternes, and especially d'Yquem. The 2011 harvest was perfect for Sauternes, and the full, rich, broad d'Yquem has the kind of clean botrytis that only the best years can bring. It was the earliest harvest for them since 1893, and has the acidity to match the fabulous scale. I thought of the great producer Maximn Grunhaus in the Ruwer in Germany when tasting this because of its poise and peachy fruit. A monumental d'Yquem!
    Drink from 2017 to 2211
