Extremely concentrated, yet subtle. Aromas of honey and spices, with an intense botrytis nose. Full-bodied, thick and fruity, with orange peel and lemon rind character. Medium sweetness. Balanced, yet thick and backward. Reminds me of the harmonious 1990--certainly the best since then. Best after 2008 Rating: 95 James Suckling, The Wine Spectator (Jul 2017)

Pungent, rich and very fine. Exciting. Great stuff. Long and rich. Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Mar 2010)
A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2055. Rating: 96-96 Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate, www.RobertParker.com
