2002 Château d'Yquem - Sauternes (375ml)
A finely delineated nose if such a thing is possible, demonstrating a sweet and grainy acacia honey aroma. On the palate it has a ripe, rounded, expansive texture and a lovely depth, but with a precise, impeccable balance. This carries the wine across the palate, rather than enveloping it in a bath of luscious, honeyed texture, remaining poised, slightly detached, but fabulously elegant. This has a very fine style. Compared to the 2001, a lesser wine, but it still demonstrates the marvellous poise and structure that says this will last for decades in the cellar.
