Castle of Yquem - Sauternes 2013

2013 remains deeply marked by a tremendous contrast between spring and summer. Everything contrasts these two seasons: On the one hand, May and June are abnormally cool and damp with a spreading bloom, pledge of complexity in sauternais. On the other hand, July and August are so hot and dry that 2013 is nearing the records. The very favorable conditions of this truly solar summer leave us very high hopes for the vintage.

Bright aromas of sliced mango, papaya, botrytis, and lemon follow through to a full body, medium sweet and phenolic palate that gives the wine structure and beauty. Electric acidity and freshness yet an impressive energy and length. A severe selection was made. 40% of the production was destined to the grand vin. About 80,000 bottles made. This is 70% semillion and 30% sauvignon. Better in 2018.

Lightly toasted marshmallow and macadamia nut aromas lead the way, followed by incredibly juicy mirabelle plum, green fig, and glazed pear and peach flavors. As big as this is, there are still plenty of honeysuckle, quinine and hamomile notes kicking the finish into yet another gear. This has purity and length to burn, which it will for a couple of generations. Best from 2020 through 2050.

(70% semillon and 30% sauvignon blanc; 13.1% alcohol and 140 g/l residual sugar; total acidity of almost 6 g/l):  Luminous medium yellow-gold.  Almost Germanic in its perfumed, bright aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, peach, lemon, lichee and ginger.  Lush but very fresh, with bracing limey acidity giving sharp definition to the complex flavors of honey, ginger, green fig, yellow melon and peach.  The brisk, harmonious acidity really cleanses the palate and makes this one of the most immediately appealing (almost too easy to drink!) Yquems in memory.  The finish is extremely long and vibrant.  This is a much less massive, opulent Yquem than usual but is extremely graceful and refined.  The product of four different tries, performed from September 25 to October 24, but only 40% of the total volume made it into Yquem.  As much as I liked this wine, I think it's a little too dominated by the sauvignon blanc (only the 2004, at 35% of the total, had more sauvignon blanc among Yquem's most recent vintages). Winemaker Sandrine Garbay told me using more sauvignon was unavoidable in 2013 because the last semillons harvested in the third and fourth tries were opulent but simple, and a little bitter, so she included less of the variety than usual.

The leading Sauternes in 2013 (as it should be, given its price tag) and one of the best Yquems since 2001, partly justifying the claims by producers and négociants for the sweet wine vintage. Aromatic and pure, with botrytis-derived notes of peach, marmalade and apricot, vanilla oak and a long, harmonious finish, with 30% Sauvignon adding freshness.

A majority of the 2013 Château d’Yquem was picked between September 25 and October 2, augmented by a second trie on October 11 after rains had provoked botrytis and then a third trie from October 21 and 24, before a final pass through the vineyard at the end of the month. Winemaker Sandrine Garbay told me that all the lots were equates to around 70.000 and 80.000 bottles. During assemblage of different lots, the blend ended up 30% Sauvignon Blanc, a little higher than usual, and 70% Semillon, while the residual sugar comes in at 140gm/L, which is a little higher than average. The reason is that the fermentation stopped naturally at this level, therefore the alcohol is a tad lower than average at 13.1 degrees. Firstly, you notice the colour, which is a touch deeper than recent vintages at this stage. The bouquet is quite honeyed and rich for Yquem at this early juncture, with subtle scents of peach skin, white flowers, and a puff of chalk and frangipane. The palate is viscous on the entry, all about the texture at first, coating the mouth with luscious botrytized fruit. There are touches of Seville orange marmalade, fresh apricot, a hint of spice and passion fruit. This is imbued with impressive depth and weight, perhaps an Yquem that is determined to make an impression after last year’s absence. It might not possess the finesse of a top flight Yquem, but it has immense power and persistency.

(70 Semillon, 30 Sauvignon Blanc) 150gm/L sugar. Cool weather followed by hot weather and then muggy weather = perfect botrytis. Yquem has the benefit of maturing on the vine fairly early so they managed to get the grapes harvested in between each downpour and before the rain set in for good. This is a very typical botrytised style of Yquem but there is also very strident acidity on board thanks to the high acid and percentage of Sauvignon of it has incredible lime juice freshness and lift. While not as classic as ’09, ’10 or ’11 this is still a lovely wine with a very long future ahead of it. They declassified 60% of the harvest and only made 80000 bottles. This is a very good, but not exceptional Yquem with green pineapple, wild flower and barely sugar notes all infused into a lime chassis. This is certainly one of the wines of the vintage.

The 2013 d'Yquem is rich, honeyed and voluptuous in the glass, but never excessively heavy. Crème brulee, candied lemon, apricot jam, orange marmalade, sweet spices and almond paste meld together in a Sauternes built on class and finesse What a gorgeous wine this is.

Excellent intensity and density for this vintage, with ripe pineapple and mango  flavours. High residual sugar at 140 grams per litre balanced by fresh, crisp  acidity

Splendide pureté presque cristalline de saveur et élégance supérieure de texture, parfait équilibre alcool liqueur, grande suite en bouche, formellement avec sigalas le plus parfait (du moins en échantillon) des sauternes du millésime. S’il prend bien son bois, dans deux ans il approchera d’une note parfaite.

Incredible aromas of botrytis, including freshly ground nutmeg and dried mushroom powder. Dried fruits. Full body with incredible clarity and balance. Very dense and gorgeous. Very sweet. It goes on for minutes. Really superb. A monument to the vintage. Breathtaking precision. A severe selection was made: 40% of the production was for the grand vin - about 80,000 bottles made. This is 70% sémillon and 30% sauvignon blanc - a little more of the latter than normal. They started harvesting the same day at Cheval Blanc, which is rare.

Lush already, this is loaded with mango, creamed peach and papaya flavors, as well as creamed melon and yellow apple fruit. The finish shows almond and meringue notes, with a bright floral chamomile thread. This has a youthful kick on the finish that should settle in. The purity is undeniable, the length extraordinary. Another classic in the making. Tasted non-blind. —J.M.

Sehr intensives, schon fast fettes Bouquet gekochte Golden Delicious, Mirabellen, frisch geschleuderter Blütenhonig, fein pfeffrige Botrytis. Im Gaumen mit burgundischer Fülle, cremiger Fluss, alles im gelben, reifen Fruchtbereich, im Finale Aprikosengelée. Für Sandrine zwischen «beau et grand».

The highlight of my latest tasting was Sauternes. These sweet wines are fabulous in 2013, and I may like them better than 2011, 2007 or 2005. They might be close to the legendary 2001 vintage in quality and style. They have a purity of botrytised fruit that is amazing. The Chateau d'Yquem 2013 is fantastic. It is THE wine of the vintage.

Barrel Sample. The beautifully aromatic, honeyed scent leads into flavors of bitter orange and honey, along with extreme freshness. Notes of white peach and Rocha pear give richness to a wine that is not huge, but wonderfully balanced.
