Honey sweet, fresh and delicious, with honeysuckle, pineapple, orange peel, tangerine and nectarine. Charm, elegance and life in a bottle. Tastes even better when enjoyed at Chateau d'Yquem property.

From Dubai to Singapore . Ch d'Yquem 2005. Almost fell of my seat when I saw this on the menu. Medium deep lemon gold, very thin rim. Still comes across as quite reticent though floral and fruit orientated , it is I suppose in Sauternes terms still an infant. There is candied citrus peel, orange , white flowers, though one gets the impression it is holding a lot back today. Rich in the mouth , huge amount of sweetness and acidity , citrus and a creme brûlée and vanilla character dominating. It is a complex wine, but being so young many nuances appear hidden and will need real age to show. In some ways a pity to open now (nah that's not right , it's always great to drink this kind of wine ) though if I had a case I would be tempted to wait maybe another 5 years and drinking the remaining bottles over maybe another 60 years! It is mouth coating , without heaviness , perfect balance , but with real richness , a wine full of contradictions. Privilege to drink, will probably outlive the great majority of those who have purchased it. Also it is worth bearing in mind this was from a half bottle! 98 points
