Yquem Ygrec Y 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"Very brilliant pale yellow color, the first nose has menthol nuances and it is accompanied by hints of thyme. The second nose is fruity it is characterized by hints of pear, grapefruit, pineapple. Then a third nose appears after the aeration: there are more floral hints, but as well hints of plum which provide elegance to the whole. The general olfactory impression recalls the specific personality of Y in the classical vintages (2000-2005-2006). The wine starts out quite lively on the palate. There is a nice acidity in that wine which is followed by a great roundness creating a lasting delight of the senses. That Y character will be a long life span vintage. " From the Yquem team 10/10.
