Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 98 Points: “The 2018 d'Yquem is all lime cordial, grapefruit oil and mandarin peel to begin. With a little coaxing, the fireworks really begin, letting off a whole array of honeysuckle, candied ginger, dried pineapple, lemon pastilles, chalk dust and sea spray scents, followed by a savory undercurrent of shaved almonds, allspice and baking bread. The palate is an exercise in polish and poise, featuring the most gorgeously creamy texture and bright, sparkling freshness, framing all the densely laden tropical and citrus fruit layers, finishing with a powerful BANG of profound floral and spice perfume. It is wonderfully sweet, yes, but that—paradoxically for a "sweet wine"—is almost beside the point.”
Decanter 97 Points: “An extremely impressive Yquem here. Deeply concentrated and silky in texture, with crème caramel and saffron, followed by bitter orange on the finish. Gourmet, powerful and concentrated, revealing as it opens in the glass the lime blossom and zest that pick things up, keeping things light and sculpted through the finish. There were five weeks without rain between the picking of the dry white Y and the main estate wine Yquem - so a full two months of harvest time. It meant a lot of patience and a small final yield, but one that was high in quality. Around 50% of the production goes into Yquem. 145g/l residual sugar and a pH of 3.95. Also tasted August 2020; same score. Drinking Window 2021 – 2034”
Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider 97 Points: “Elegant, creamy, fresh, sweet charmer. While this lacks the density and verve found in the very best vintages, there is more than enough ripe and overripe pineapple, vanilla, roasted apricot, mango, candied orange rind and honey to keep any taster busy. Luscious textured, rich and opulent, this will be delicious in its youth, and it also has the ability to age for decades.”
Falstaff 97 Points: “Mittleres Grüngelb, silberfarbene Reflexe. Mit feiner Edelholzwürze unterlegte reife gelbe Tropenfrucht, kandierte Orangen- und Grapefruitzesten, etwas Pfirsich und Blütenhonig, Biskuit im Hintergrund. Stoffig, elegant, angenehme Fruchtsüße, zart nach Kokos und Litschi, cremige, seidige Textur, sehr balanciert, reifer Pfirsich und Honig auch im Nachhall, sehr vielversprechend, zeigt große Länge, weißer Pfeffer im Nachhall.’’
