"Yquem’s greatness and uniqueness are certainly a result of a number of factors.

"First, it has a perfect location that is said to have its own microclimate. Second, the Lur Saluces family installed an elaborate drainage system with over 60 miles of pipes. Third, there is a fanatical obsession at Yquem to produce only the finest wines regardless of financial loss or trouble.

"It is this last factor that is the biggest reason why Yquem is so superior to its neighbours."

98 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 vigour 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.
