Description Sub Region Producer Notes
 
Sweet as crème brulée yet nervy with acidity, this ’01 Sauternes layers its honeyed tropical fruits with toasted nuts, maple syrup, baking spices, citrus zest and buttery toffee--it’s a tour de force! Velvety and balanced, this wine glides on the palate, despite its weight; it’s almost painfully pure and intense, and it builds to a finish that seems never to end. Château d'Yquem’s skilled pickers hand-select the vines’ fully botrytized fruit, and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine. Vintage after vintage, Château d'Yquem continues to set the bar not merely for Sauternes, but for fine dessert wines around the world.
