Chris Kissack, Winedoctor: "Here at Yquem the 2017 vintage boasts an impressive residual sugar of 148 g/l, an alcohol of 13.9% and a total acidity of 3.9 g/l. The blend this here is 85% Semillon and 15% Sauvignon Blanc, a little more Semillon and less Sauvignon than the norm. The aromatics are very pure, fresh and vibrant, with scents of mango, pineapple, yellow peach and lychee. In short it has the usually defined and yet evocative nose, precise, expressive, rich, with wonderful freshness and purity. This comes across on the palate too, which starts with a frame of stone, with wonderful breadth and texture, controlled and refined, but fresh, with a mélange of pure, harmonious and ripe polished fruits. It gentle fades, showing a precise textural definition wrapped around a central core of grip and acidity. This is clearly a great Sauternes in the making, and while it might not be at the level of the greatest vintages, it is deliciously defined and elegant, with rich textural and botrytis potential beneath. From my Bordeaux 2017 primeurs assessment. 96-98/100 (April 2018)"

Julia Harding MW: "Rich, creamy-almond nose, almond paste, ripe pears, apricot more than bitter orange. The first impression showed less immediate botrytis than I expected, it smells so creamy. Fills the mouth with sweetness and a light peppery spice. As it opens up, there's pineapple and bitter orange flavours emerge. Viscous texture and such concentration that it fills your mouth even after spitting. Unctuous but balanced by the bitter-orange freshness on the long finish. 18,5 (April 2018)"

Lisa Perrotti-Brown: "There was no frost at d’Yquem in 2017, and botrytis was very regular and even this vintage. The nose opens with very pure notes of freshly sliced oranges, yuzu and lemon barley water with hints of white pepper, fresh ginger and lime cordial. The incredibly rich, unctuous sweetness (148 grams per liter of residual sugar) is beautifully marbled with bright, vivacious citrus fruit and spice flavors, while lifted by well-knit freshness, and it finishes with epic length and great depth. 97-99 (April 2018)"
