Tasted single blind against its peers. Under blind conditions, the Yquem 2007 shines like a diamond. Nevertheless, it is initially rather taciturn on the nose, eventually opening up beautifully with touches of lemon curd, Mirabelle, and clear honey. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine definition and there seems to be a great deal of energy and vigor dispensed for your pleasure. There is such race and nervosity, and then that finish just purrs with harmony and focus. This Yquem feels just so alive and vivacious, yet there is an effortless quality here that is unmatched by its peers.
Intense, with a wide range of maple, hazelnut-singed piecrust and apple crumble notes, all offset beautifully by a taut orange zest accent that imparts tension and length to balance the broad, rich core. Ends with a viscous feel and lingering energy.--Non-blind Yquem vertical (July 2014). Best from 2015 through 2040. 10,000 cases made.
Mid bronzy gold. Lovely lift and complexity. Fantastic! Best wine tasted so far (all red otherwise). Great nuance and herbs and so sweet but all kept in great barley-sugar corset with leaves and refreshment on the end, orange peel. Long, meat and two veg and SO interesting! Jancis Robinson
A beautiful sweet vintage with candied orange peel, lovely botrytis complexity and rich mouthfeel. It has gained even more depth and richness in bottle. Enjoy now in its youth but best after 4-6 more years in bottle. By jeannie cho lee in 2015
