Notes

'Somewhat muted floral aromas of jasmine, orange blossom and honeysuckle over candied pineapple. A waft of anise and some cedar. The palate is quite restrained with well balanced sweetness versus medium to high acidity. Very long finish – a mineral character coming through. Tasted August 2009.' – Wine Advocate

'2005 is the finest young vintage of Bordeaux I have tasted and the brilliant quality extends to the sweet wines. In such a structured, powerful vintage, d’Yquem can be very difficult to appreciate when young as it is usually covered in sweetness and lots of sulphur. But with a decade of age, the 2005 d’Yquem is starting to unveil its greatness, and this bottle will win over wine and non-wine lovers alike. It needs another decade and then, like its length, it will last forever…' – Roland Peens, December 2015
