97pts James Suckling

Lime and spicy pear with crushed stone. Kumquats. Smoke and iron. Kiwi. Full and rounded with bitter pear and steel. Dried limes. Unique minerality. Bright acidity. Touch of sweetness at the end that makes it fascinating. 

95pts The Wine Independent

A blend of 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon, with 7 grams per liter of residual sugar, the 2021 ‘‘Y’’ gives up delicate notes of honey-drizzled peaches, lemon tart, and lime leaves, leading to hints of coriander seed and green apples, with a waft of chalk dust. The medium-bodied palate has a wonderfully satiny texture, with crisp acidity cutting through the intense apple and citrus layers, finishing long and zesty.

94pts Wine Enthusiast

From the same vines as its parent d'Yquem, the wine is fresh and full of ripe yellow fruits. Ripe apricots and honey come together with the beautiful texture in this rich, but dry, wine. Drink from 2027.

94pts Wine Spectator

Suave, with alluring acacia, elderflower and lemon pith notes backed by a long finish revealing racy and creamy aspects. Offers nice chalk and orange blossom details in the background, too. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2028.

Winemaker's Notes

Y 2021 is sappy and vivacious, striking a pitch-perfect balance between the freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc and the complexity of the Semillon. The bouquet is dominated by pear, white peach, and fresh almond aromas. The complex finish is accented with zesty tangerine, offset with handsome, bitter notes that linger long on the palate.

Blend: 65% Sauvignon Blanc, 35% Semillon
