White wine - France - 100/100 points, Robert Parker

These 2 bottles (1 regular 75cl and 1 demi 37,5cl bottle) of Château D'Yquem. Maybe the best year for Yquem of this century already. 100 Robert Parker points as well as 100 points of Wine Spectator.

Bought en primeur.

Always stored in EuroCave climate-controlled cellar. See Photo's.

Sending the bottles to countries with import restrictions (f.e. USA / Canada) are at risk for the buyer.

Robert Parker (100/100):
There are 10,000 cases of this perfect sweet white Bordeaux. In the mouth, it is full-bodied with gorgeously refreshing acidity as well as massive concentration and unctuosity. Everything is uplifted and given laser-like focus by refreshing acidity. This large-scaled, youthful Yquem appears set to take its place among the most legendary vintages of the past, and will age effortlessly for 75+ years. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2100+.
