Chateau d’Yquem, Sauternes, Bordeaux, France 2005
Not a truly great vintage in Sauternes, but an exquisite wine. Delicate apricot and passionfruit aromas, elegant rather than explosive. Fine attack, bright and fresh, very intense and tangy, with stone-fruits and barleysugar flavours. Beautifully textured with vivid acidity.
