Made from a blend of grape varieties, 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, this 2005 vintage has a beautiful light yellow color. Its nose delivers aromas of dried fruit, figs and apricots, as well as light aromas of vanilla. The palate is fresh, with spicy and fruity notes and the finish is long.
A rich and powerful vintage ... simply sublime!
The advice of 12bouteilles: An exceptional vintage, to open for a big occasion. Yquem wines can be appreciated both young and old. This 2005 vintage will perfectly match a blue cheese or a refined county.
According to the owner, "To appreciate the light afforded by the opening of a Yquem, it is appropriate to be three, the bottle, a friend and self."
