Robert Parker - 93 Points

"A blend of 55% Sémillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc (the highest percentage of Sauvignon Blanc ever), the 2019 d'Yquem features a Sauvignon Blanc-driven bouquet with aromas of menthol, artichoke, iodine, asparagus and orchard fruits. Balanced and delicately moderated on the palate, it’s energetic and tense, culminating in an ethereal, fruity finish. Residual sugar: 138 grams per liter."

Antonio Galloni - 95+ Points

"The 2019 Yquem has a flirtatious bouquet with yellow plum, honeysuckle and jasmine developing with time. Fine purity, though not showstopping complexity. The palate is smooth and pure. Very nicely integrated oak, creamy, touches of vanilla and crème brûlée towards the finish. This is a quite gorgeous Yquem, though I am certain that given more time to open it would have merited a higher score. Tasted blind at the Southwold annual tasting."
