Château D’yquem Sauternes 2014, Bordeaux, France

This is a fabulous sweet wine from Bordeaux.

Dark Golden in color.

Beautiful sweet nose of honey, yellow apples, apricots, honeysuckle, lemons, caramel, spices and white pepper.

Full bodied and bold, with high acidity.

Sweet on the palate with honey, citrus, tropical fruits, spices, lemons and brown sugar.

Long, long finish with citrus and limes.

This 8 year old still feels very young and concentrated. Nicely balanced with lots of acidity to balance the sugars. Tangy and interesting with a heavy mouthfeel.

Rich, yet elegant. Sweet and powerful. Creamy and bold. A delicious experience.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime.

A great vintage that shows its power. Already showing great complexity, but will age nicely in the next 50 years.

Decadent and delicious. A fabulous dessert wine.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

97 points.

$250 (375ml).
