Château d'Yquem 2019 magnum

Château d'Yquem 2019 magnum

Premier Cru Supérieur de Sauternes
Dinsdag 22 maart 2022 was de release van dit geweldige jaar. Valt op door z'n frisheid en levendigheid, z'n enorme expressie. De blend is altijd het resultaat van blindproeven. Voor de 2019 betekende dat een ongewoon groot aandeel sauvignon. Yquem kan eindeloos rijpen, maar waarom wachten...

Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux maart 2022 – "Clear push and pull between acidity and lusciousness from the first moments. A higher percentage of Sauvignon Blanc than in a typical year, showing in sculpted gunsmoke and white truffle on the opening beats. Fresher flavours continue with lemongrass and lime zest, broadening out into luscious mango, grilled caramel, pineapple and brioche, and a welcome edge of bitterness on the finish with mandarin peel and oyster shell salinity. As has so often been the case in recent years, the team at Yquem needed to hold their nerve, as a dry September meant the noble rot took its time to get underway, with harvest finally taking place from around October 10 though to early November." 97/100

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Wine Independent maart 2022 – "Pale lemon-gold in color, the 2019 Château d’Yquem springs forth with confident, alluring scents of lime blossoms, mandarin peel, and candied lemon slices over a core of fresh pineapple, white peaches, and crushed stones, plus a hint of shaved ginger. The palate absolutely pops with vibrant citrus flavors accented by tropical fruits and peachy nuances, supported by an achingly velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing with long-lasting mineral and floral fireworks. An irresistible fat-cheeked baby with that Mona Lisa smile at the moment, give it 6-8 years in the cellar to begin to reveal its opulent personality, and then drink it over the next 30-35 years+. The blend is 55% Semillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc with 138 g/L of residual sugar and a pH of 3.9. The alcohol weighs in at 14.4." 97+/100

Xavier Auerbach maart 2022 – "Château d'Yquem dinner with Sandrine Garbay. A marvellous event, hosted by Bolomey Wijnimport and Restaurant Zoldering. Double magnum. Pre-release. An unprecedented blend of 55% Sémillon and 45% Sauvignon. Beautifully harmonious and pure in style, fresh and intense, like biting into a fresh botrytis grape, very gentle oak delivers subtle vanilla but not resin, flowers and quince, tropical fruit, a wonderfully delicate balance between residual sugar and acidity, perfect balance, flowing and elegant style, excellent resonance and length. A stunning drink already, great future." 97/100

Neal Martin, Vinous februari 2022 – "Tasting the 2019, I noticed that it has a slightly paler hue compared to recent vintages (though I never read too much into the colour of young Sauternes.) For certain, it has a highly-aromatic bouquet that is beguiling in purity, enticing aromas of honeysuckle and saffron, soon joined by camomile, white flowers and orange blossom. It has wonderful delineation and gains intensity with aeration. The palate is supremely well-balanced with fine bead of acidity. Very harmonious and armed with just the right amount of viscosity, this Yquem is surprisingly understated at first but gains presence, offering irresistible flavours of layers of honey, lemongrass, lemon thyme and orange pith. Yquem is so tempting in its youth, but I feel that this vintage will repay those with the nous to cellar for at least a decade." 98/100
