Sauternes 1996

The 1996 Chateau d’Yquem is a masterpiece of sweet wine. Deep golden amber in colour. On the nose, there are aromas of honey, apricot, marmalade, and saffron, with a subtle hint of botrytis. The palate is luscious and unctuous, with flavours of candied citrus, honeycomb, and baked apple that are balanced by a vibrant acidity. The wine has a long and persistent finish, with a touch of nuttiness that adds to its richness.
