"Tasted blind at Southwold ’06 Bordeaux tasting. This is tightly coiled on the nose, honey, a touch of ginger, barley sugar and a touch of brown sugar. Quite complex but it needs time. The palate is excellent with crystalline, honeyed fruit, superb balance with hints of honeysuckle, beeswax, apricot and marmalade. Superb balance and poise towards the elegant, graceful finish with fine persistency. This is a fantastic d’Yquem that I fear may be overlooked thanks to the ’07 or ‘09. A regal Yquem." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Jul 2010

Estimate: $2,250
