Tasting Notes and Scores

Neal Martin

Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 2009 Chateau d’Yquem is one showstopper of a wine and perhaps it is only in a vertical that you realize this is up there among the legendary wines of the past – the 2001 included. It has a wonderful nose that expresses the Semillon component majestically: heady aromas of lemon curd, nectarine, jasmine and honeysuckle that all gain momentum in the glass. The oak is supremely well-integrated. The palate is extremely well-balanced with an unctuous entry. You are immediately knocked sideways by the palpable weight and volume in the mouth, which is almost “bulbous,” with layer upon layer of heavily botrytized fruit. It builds to a spicy finish with hints of marzipan and pralines in the background that lend it an untrammeled sense of exoticism. The 2009 is utterly fabulous and decadent, a star that will blaze brightly and undimmed for many years. Drink now-2060+. Tasted March 2014.

Mid gold; intense, beautifully clear cut nose of honey, subtle new oak, raisins, intense and persistent; very rich, very sweet, and vital in its supporting acidity; liqueur-like in its concentration and viscosity of texture, yet completely without heaviness; and behind the sugar an exceptionally energetic raciness, a constant underlying frisson of energy within the enveloping, silky coating; pure honey, raisin, gently citrussy orange and tangerine base flavours enlivened by the exotic spice and complexity of botrytis; enormously tenacious flavour as one explores it, keeps it, lets it rest on the palate. An exceptionally refined and delicate richness, and a presence, as an aftertaste, that can be measured in minutes. The richest, sweetest, most succulent Yquem I have tasted. In my view finer than the1990, richer than the 1989, more fine spun than 2003 - all comparisons made by the château. Whether it will measure up to the 2001 it will be interesting to see; for the moment it seems more obviously opulent, less taut, more liqueur like in texture, though time in barrel will give it even more complexity, definition, resonance. A wonderful expression of Sauternes, which will be a delight from the moment it is bottled I should imagine. 2018-50+
