Yquem might be the single greatest wine in the world. Yes, those are bold words, but it is arguably true. This bottle was wonderful indeed. Paired with Mango roses in a Rose water and honey sauce, it was sublime. Light golden in color, this wine is still quite young. The nose is amazing with slight apricot, lots of honey and orange peel. Viscous and sweet, not cloying. The orange peel and honey carry thru. The thing about Yquem is the finish. It goes on forever and ever. Very nice acidity in 2011. This bottle will continue to age and mature for fifty years and no doubt at some point will get a 100 score. Just shy of that tonight but that's just fine.
