According to Pierre Lurton 2013 was "a magnificent year for sweet wines". Indeed this vintage could present the culmination of the style of Yquem. The strong international demand that Yquem experienced for this vintage is intrinsic to its qualities and its reputation as a nectar of solid gold. Yquem 2013 is a deep, golden yellow, beautifully lustrous and bright. Olfaction immediately plunges us into the magical world of this prestigious cru. Exhibiting an exceptional aromatic purity, aromas of fresh mango, dried linden flowers and ginger create a nose which is mesmerizing. On agitation, we experience aromas of spices (reminding us of the ginger in the first nose), a refreshing minerality, rich, unique and accentuated by the perfume of black tea. On the palate, it is full of flavour and chiselled by a beautifully fresh acidity followed mid-palate by accents of white pepper, marmalade, fresh pineapple and fresh hazelnut. The finish is volatile with a touch of verbena and a pleasant acidity. This is a wine, which is precise and complete. In short, Yquem in all its magnificence.
