Castle of Yquem - Sauternes 2005

The weather season is characterized by extreme drought: with 487 mm of rain between November 2004 and October 2005, the deficit (more than 40%) reaches records (only two months out of twelve average). 2005 ranks 2nd in the driest years since 1897 (behind 1906 and just before 1989, great achievements in Yquem). Temperatures, as often in the last 20 years, are much higher than normal, and in June-October 2005 is the fifth warmest year in 110 years (after 2003, 1949, 1921 or 1899 and before 1906 or 1947, Synonymous with very great vintages). These excellent conditions, particularly in June, favor a particularly homogeneous flowering of a good quantitative level but without excess. The natural distribution of the clusters on the vines is ideal, without any overcrowding and requires no intervention in green. The heat of the beginning of the summer becomes more measured in August and avoids too much water stress while preserving the precious potential of acidity.

Tasted at the château, the 2005 Chateau d’Yquem delivers a similar performance as last year. Lucid in colour, the bouquet is detailed with very pure honey, vanilla and almond scents, still a little new oak to be fully assimilated but demonstrating superb focus. The palate is virtually identical to last year's bottle: exquisite balance and perfectly judged acidity, but perhaps just gaining a little richness and viscosity over the last 12 months. There is an appealing completeness to this Yquem and whilst I would not place it amongst the likes of 2001 or 2009, it comfortably sits just behind.

Palette aromatique complexe qui va de la pomme au four à l'orange confite voire à la tarte aux abricots. Un vin tout en douceur mais avec de la tenue. Il offre une grande harmonie dans une matière à la fois fluide, intense et nourrie par une gracieuse liqueur sans pour autant manquer de nerf, jolie finale d'agrumes. Superbe!

This has a deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple and Jonagold apple flavors all melded together and gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers and dried citrus notes. Best from 2015 through 2045. 12,000 cases made.

Tasted single blind at Southwold. This is a little blowsy on the nose at first, presence of warm alcohol, honeyed fruit, lanolin and yellow flowers. It needs to calm down because the palate exudes class. Beautifully balanced, good minerality, fine tension with touches of acacia honey, citrus lemon, Satsuma and quince towards the finish. Very well defined but needs time to be tamed. Drink 2012-2040. Tasted January 2009. 93+

Floral, lemon, apple and cream with dried pineapple and apricot. Full-bodied, but very focused and refined. It starts slowly and then, wham! It goes on and on. Spicy, dried fruits and spices. Full-bodied, medium-sweet. So long and exciting. Incredible. It is very close to 2001. We will see. —J.S.
