"Tasted single blind against its peers. Under blind conditions, the Yquem 2007 shines like a diamond. Nevertheless, it is initially rather taciturn on the nose, eventually opening up beautifully with touches of lemon curd, Mirabelle, and clear honey. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine definition and there seems to be a great deal of energy and vigor dispensed for your pleasure. There is such race and nervosity, and then that finish just purrs with harmony and focus. This Yquem feels just so alive and vivacious, yet there is an effortless quality here that is unmatched by its peers. Tasted January 2011."(2/2012)

"This has really started to put on weight, with heather and ginger notes emerging from the core of dried pineapple, bergamot, candied grapefruit rind and mango. Long and creamy through the very rich, spicy finish, with lingering golden raisin and frangipane notes. Loads of power in reserve, as this sports the bold, hedonistic profile of the vintage in spades. Best from 2020 through 2050. (Web-2012)"
"80% Sémillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc. After a relatively mild winter, temperatures shot up in April, and were more in keeping with a beautiful month of May. This obviously had an effect on vine growth and the first flowers appeared on 11 May, some two weeks earlier than average. While minimum temperatures were slightly higher than usual thereafter, maximum temperatures began to drop. This tendency increased as the season went on, and the summer ended up being fairly cool. Furthermore, it rained heavily (twice the average amount) and more frequently (3 days out of 4) in May and June. Flowering was thus upset, and spread over four weeks. Harvest 10 September to 7 October. Deep orangey gold. Complex nose. Rather fat and waxy with lots of development. Masses of palate weight. Very precise definition on the palate initially although on the finish it's already a bit diffuse. This would be a good Yquem to enjoy now, or any time over the next decade or two. 17.5/20 points.
