Heiner Lobenberg über:
Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß) 2015


Lobenberg: So unglaublich puristische Frucht mit einem riesigen Spannungsbogen und verblüffender Frische. Ein genialer Yquem für die Ewigkeit. 100/100


Parker über: Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß)

-- Parker: Following a very long harvest stretching nearly two months, the 2015 Château d'Yquem came in at 13.9% alcohol and 144 grams per liter of residual sugar, sporting a pH of 3.65 and six grams per liter of tartaric acid. None of these numbers, however, even remotely begin to tell you how profound this wine is. The nose opens with electric notes of ripe pineapples, green mango, orange blossoms and lemon tart with hints of fungi, lime zest, crushed rocks and jasmine. The freshness on the palate is just astonishing, permeating and lifting layer upon layer of tropical fruits and earthy notions, all encased in a sumptuous texture and culminating in a very, very long, mineral-tinged finish. Truly, this is a legendary vintage for d'Yquem. I've been conservative with my drinking window here, and I would not be at all surprised if our descendants are drinking this vintage well into the next century. 100/100


Gabriel über: Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß)

-- Gabriel: Mitteldunkles Gelb, somit recht intensiv, leuchtender Rand. Ein Cocktail von Mirabellen und Aprikosen, vermischt mit einer besonders vielschichtigen, feinpfeffrigen Botrytis zeigt sich im reichen Nasenbild. Im Gaumen ist er einerseits sehr frisch, aber auch opulent und unglaublich cremig. Dieser Nektar ist so geschmeidig, dass man kaum glauben kann, dass es sich hier um eine Fassprobe handelt. Das Finale ist gebündelt und endlos lang. Der Restzuckergehalt beträgt 140 Gramm. Natürlich ist jeder Yquem ein Unikat. Wenn man Vergleiche anstellen müsste, so käme mit ein Blend der Jahrgänge 1990, 2001 und 2009 in den Sinn. 20/20


Quarin über: Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß)

-- Quarin: Nez intense, fin, mûr et subtil. Bouche ample, fondante, offrant dès les premiers instants un toucher magique. Puis le vin fond, sculptural, gracieux vers une grande profondeur et une qualité de saveurs royale. Tenue et expression bouleversantes. Grande finale irrésistible et incrachable. 100/100


Suckling über: Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß)

-- Suckling: This is an incredible young Yquem that is so vinous like a great vintage of Montrachet but then on the palate it turns to Yquem with spice, dried fruit and mushroom as well as sweet fruit. Last for minutes. Acidity is all there giving it a dynamic vibrance that jolts your senses. Special wine. It has a little more than than 140 grams of residual sugar, less than the legendary of 2001. But is very close in greatness. Let’s wait and see. 99-100/100


Decanter über: Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß)

-- Decanter: A profound, memorable Yquem that has huge intensity and concentration, amazing purity and crystalline fruits, and an impeccable balance between sweetness, acidity and structure. Despite its power, it can be enjoyed now, or kept 50+ years. A blend of 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc, with 144g/l of residual sugar, this may not quite have the ethereal lift of 2001 or 2007 but it’s a stunning wine. 99/100


Neal Martin über: Chateau Yquem 1er Cru Superieur (fruchtsüß)

-- Neal Martin: -- NM: The 2015 Château d'Yquem is a blend of 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc that was picked on the gravelly soils as early as 3 and 4 September until 21 October, four tries through the vineyard. It delivers 144 grams per liter of residual sugar, with six-grams of tartaric acid, a pH 3.65 and 13.9% alcohol. It has a show-stopping bouquet that is beautifully defined and very complex and exuberant, infused with greater mineralité than recent vintages - intense but not as flamboyant as say the 2009 Yquem at this stage. The palate boasts absolutely stunning balance. This is a Yquem without a hair out of place: fantastically pure, botrytised fruit caressing the mouth. That is as per normal. What distinguishes this Yquem is the sense of electricity that is imbued by that razor-sharp acidity. There is just unbelievably tension here and to be frank, there is little point in me continuing to write this note, because it is simply an astonishing Yquem that will rank alongside the 2001 and 2009. 98-100/100
