The best known Sauternes château always makes less than a thousand bottles, very little in relation to its hundred or more hectares (247 acres). Normal threats of damp weather and too much fungus were reversed in 2010, in a drought with cool nights, but underlying water provided growth. From a fine, very pale gold with transparent meniscus in the glass, a respiration of pure honey, polished cedar, cut grass, almond and orange blossom is provided in a single gentle intake. The palate receives a positive acidity, enveloping flavours of peach, banana, vanilla and pale cherries. Ivor Davies
Extraordinary purity of aromas, with an airy power difficult to rival, a new brilliant example of the actual style of the property, with the vintage's monumental body completely hidden by the refinement of tactile sensations. Some are nostalgic for the epic oily bodies of the past, not I (even if I greatly admire them). Drink 2020-2070. (19 points) Michel Bettane, decanter.com
This is a stunner.Mandarin, apricot, muscat grape, marker per (botrytis). Sweet and complex with vibrant acidity. Keeps coming and coming. Very very fine indeed - beautifully assembled!
Picked predominantly over 10 days from October 14, the 2010 d’Yquem has 141gms/L residual sugar and pH 3.80. It is a slow-burner, the nose understated at first but unfurling with each passing moment with subtle scents of freshly sliced apricots, Clementine, clear honey and white flowers. There is an underlying minerality that really defines this bouquet. The palate is similar to the nose, revealing hidden facets with almost each swirl of the glass – orange blossom, limestone, white peach and honeysuckle. This is such a precise d’Yquem. it is after you have swallowed the wine that one comprehends just how brilliant it is. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate May 2011
‘2010 was a cool year for us.’ Winter and autumn cold, good dry, warm summer. Very healthy grapes, though quite a bit of rain on the flowering, A bit of coulure on Sauvignon so less than usual in the blend, just 13% compared to the usual 20%. Pale gold with slight greenness. Gorgeous, classic nose. Pear juice a go-go. Absolutely stunning freshness as well as all the botrytis. Classic. Real punchy perfect savoury Sauternes. Zesty and lovely with some chew on the end. No shortage of botrytis. Very distinctive and much less sweet than 2009. (155 g/l in 2009, 141 g/l in 2010). Refined finish. Finished 5 Nov. Five passes. Real punch and zest. Grapefruit peel. But not a massive sweet bomb. 13.55% Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com
Intensely aromatic, with honeysuckle, marmalade, and candied citrus notes, the 2010 Yquem is a wine of amazing freshness and vibrancy of flavour, with layers of sweet flowers and ripe stone fruits, and great substance and depth. More of a middleweight than the 2009, the 2010 Yquem weighed in at 140 g/l of residual sugar versus 155g/l in the 2009. Jeannie Cho Lee MW asianpalate.com
Tropical and inviting, with lush mango, fig and papaya aromas followed by pineapple and creamed banana. The long tangerine finish is flattering and very open now, but the length is clearly there. Tasted non-blind. —J.M. James Molesworth, winespectator.com
This is a super balanced and racy Yquem with nuts. light pineapple and apple ccharacter. Full and dense but bright and fresh. Love the spicy botrytis with light apple tart and nuts on the finish. Not a great vintage for Sauternes, but Yquem stays on top. James Suckling, jamessuckling.com
Served from an ex-chateau bottle. Consistent notes compared to the sample tasted blind at Southwold, the 2010 Chateau d’Yquem does not quite live up to the billing it showed out of barrel. Certainly it does not possess the concentration of the 2011, the elegance or the symmetry. However, there is fine minerality on the nose and great transparency. The palate is fresh and harmonious, with a fine bead of citrus fruit and a penetrating, spicy finish that offers white peach and honeysuckle notes, yet does not possess anything close to the peacock’s tail of the magnificent 2009. Still, this is a fine Yquem. Drink 2017-2040+. Tasted March 2014. eRobertParker.com.June, 2014
