Ideal conditions for botrytis were challenged by uneven ripening. This latter demanded obsessive attention to detail during the numerous picking passes through the vineyard. Yquem's resources permit such meticulous care and inevitably have resulted in a wine which is of magnificent richness, personality, harmony and persistence. Outstanding.

A high calibre wine drinking beautifully now, this superb gift comes from a popular property with Majestic's fine wine customers. With a wonderfully classical label and stylish wooden packaging this is certain to impress a wine connoisseur.
Exuberant on the nose, yet refined, this has notes of yellow plum and raisin, as well as a touch of caramel. On the palate, there are notes of grapefruit citrus and greengage fruit, as well as the more complex notes found in great botrytised wines: toffee, dried fruit and candied peel. An invigorating acidity lends balance and lift and this finishes beautifully long and mineral. Part of the New Fine Wine Parcel.
