Chateau d'Yquem 2006

Bordeaux - Sauternes - White Chateau d'Yquem Chateau d'Yquem 2006 1082/06
  • Parker : 95
  • J. Robinson : 19
There is no doubt that this Sauternes has the most beautiful colour in this balanced and quite aery vintage from Château D'Yquem. The robe of Yquem 2006 has a light amber colour with a pretty gold and green reflection. The texture appears as fat and oily. The nose of this great Sauternes expresses aromatic purity and concentrated jammy elements at the same time. More precisely, this Yquem 2006 offers a candied structure: melon, quince, fresh mirabelle plum, citrus fruit, pineapple and mint. The swirling unveils botrytised and honeyed classic notes as a proof that this wine is a beautifully concentrated wine. On the mouth, the attack is sweet (128 grams of residual sugar) yet without suffering from weakness or flabbiness.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2006 Yquem, which I last tasted in 2014, continues to be a great Yquem, not quite among the top tier but let's slot it in one level below. It possesses virtually the same aromatics as the last bottle that I tasted at the château: beeswax and lanolin merging with honeyed fruit, dried quince and marzipan. The palate is medium-bodied, viscous, a dash of spice on the entry with very good weight in the mouth. There is still that lovely saltiness on the finish that leaves you begging for another sip - completing a long-term Yquem that is only just finishing its first couple of chapters. Tasted April 2016.
