100 points "There are 10,000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. The 2001 Yquem reveals a hint of green in its light gold color. While somewhat reticent aromatically, with airing, it offers up honeyed tropical fruit, orange marmalade, pineapple, sweet creme brulee, and buttered nut-like scents. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2100+. (Release date, Sept. 1, 2005) " Best 2010-2100

"Extremely perfumed, with pineapple, lime and vanilla as well as hints of apricot and peach. Full-bodied and very sweet, with an explosion of fruit on the palate. Goes on and on and has an electrifying finish. All this richness but incredible balance and harmony. I love it. Could be the new benchmark for sweet wines. Score range: 95-100 (JS)"
