2004 Chateau dYquem Reviews

96 Pointz Wine Enthusiast

“This is a beautiful Yquem, not huge or powerful, but with crispness, honey, and freshness, very expressive of the year. The higher than usual proportion of Sauvignon in the blend gives it a real lift.”

94 Pointz Wine Spectator

“Tropically ripe, with dense yet creamy layers of guava, mango, lychee, and papaya, all stitched with racy lemon cream and candied grapefruit peel notes. Frangipane-framed finish pumps out wave after wave of unctuous fruit. Starting to hits its second gear, and with old-school Yquem power and muscle.”

93 Pointz Vinous

“The 2004 Chateau d’Yquem is almost identical to the bottle that I tasted at the château four years ago. It has a generous bouquet; the oak a tad more subsumed since my last encounter, with generous lemon curd, dried honey, mango, and Mirabelle aromas billowing from the glass. It is a well-balanced and quite weighty d’Yquem with slightly lower acidity than its peers; viscous in texture with a tropical tinged finish that I maintain just lacks the tension and energy of a d’Yquem from the top-drawer.”

92 Pointz Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Served from an ex-chateau bottle. This replicated the performance in the Southwold blind tasting. The 2004 Chateau d’Yquem’s bouquet is generous but not as complex as either the 2005 or indeed the 2006. The oak a little pronounced considering the age in bottle, but it does not leap at you shouting “I’m Yquem!” The palate has a viscous tangerine and orange peel opening with fine acidity. There is good weight in the mouth, with touches of spice and cardamom. It finishes just a little abruptly for a Yquem, a pretty note without requisite sustain. Drink now-2035. Tasted March 2014.”
