Εξαιρετικό, μεγαλειώδες Sauternes, όπως μόνο το Chateau dYquem καταφέρνει να δημιουργεί... Γλυκό και μεταξένιο, πολυεπίπεδο, με απίστευτη ζωντάνια χάρη στην υπέροχη οξύτητα που δεν το αφήνει να γίνεται πλαδαρό, πλούτο και βάθος, και τεράστια ποικιλία αρωμάτων με μέλι, λευκόσαρκα ροδάκινα, αχλάδια, λεμόνια και φλούδα πορτοκαλιού... Καταπληκτικό!
98/100 Wine Advocate (Robert Parker)
Tasted single blind against its peers. Under blind conditions, the Yquem 2007 shines like a diamond. Nevertheless, it is initially rather taciturn on the nose, eventually opening up beautifully with touches of lemon curd, Mirabelle, and clear honey. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine definition and there seems to be a great deal of energy and vigor dispensed for your pleasure. There is such race and nervosity, and then that finish just purrs with harmony and focus. This Yquem feels just so alive and vivacious, yet there is an effortless quality here that is unmatched by its peers. Tasted January 2011.

97/100 Wine Advocate (Robert Parker)
The Yquem 2007 sports a clear gold hue with youthful green tints. The nose is very pure, understated at first, unfurling with aeration in the glass, offering honey, acacia, Mirabelle and a hint of apple blossom. The palate has a viscous entry, very pure with honey, white peach, fresh pear, lemon and orange zest, a tangible sense of vibrancy and vigour. Not a powerful Yquem, but one of incisive focus and nervosite, very pure botrytis, adorned with an almost tense zesty finish that succinctly counterpoises the residual sugar. This is an outstanding Yquem, surpassed only by the 2001 during this decade. Drink 2012-2050. Wine Advocate Issue #188 Apr 2010
97-100/100 Wine Spectator
This is amazing. Full of spicy botrytis character, with smoke and piecrust underneath. Full and rich, yet not cloying or too dense. Its lively and long, finishing with intensity and powerl. A unnerving combination of wild ripe fruit and intense botrytis, with lively acidity. Really powerful. Should be a perfect wine. Score range: 97-100 –JS Issue: Web Only - 2008
