Reviews of Château D'Yquem 2001
Beautiful brilliant golden colour. Concentrated bouquet of ripe fruit (mirabelle plum, apricot, and mango) and dried fruit (fig, raisin, and quince), followed by hints of white fruit (pear and vine peach) and spicy nuances (saffron, curry, toasty aromas, fresh mint, and eucalyptus). This vintage's bouquet has a rare subtlety that can only increase with age.
The wine starts off sumptuously on the palate, with uncommon volume and body. Its is tremendously suave and well-structured, providing an intense tasting pleasure for which the keywords are balance, opulence, and refinement. Rarely have we encountered such an impression of perfection in the history of Château d'Yquem. The aftertaste goes on into infinity, echoing the multiple sensations experienced up until then. After experiencing this unique pleasure, one has only one idea in mind - to re-enter the extraordinary world of 2001 Yquem.
