Not a whole lot more to say about Yquem that hasn't been said, but it is arguably the greatest winery on the planet. The 2013 is a very good if not top vintage, but still a thrill to drink. Golden in color, light with just a tinge of orange. The nose is great with apricots, slight honey and slight tangerines. Viscous. Full bodied. Great balance. On the palate, this is delicious. Flavors of apricots and tangerines. Sweet with enough acidity to not be cloying. The finish goes on forever. This is drinking well now and should drink well for another twenty to thirty years. Great on its own, this will work with a less sweet yellow cake.
