Bottled in September 2012, the 2011 vintage of Y is a superb example of the new generation of this wine. It displays intense Sauvignon Blanc aromas and delicate overtones of Sémillon. The former contributes grapefruit, tropical fruit and basil nuances as well as crispness on the palate whereas the latter adds a round, smooth texture and hints of pear and white peaches. This wine is incredibly fresh and vibrant with delicious fruity and floral aromas, as well as a beautiful long aftertaste.
Creamy and caressing overall, with brioche and macadamia nut flavors framing the core of white peach, yellow apple and green almond notes. The long, salted butter finish also features pleasant echoes of quinine and tangerine. Should unwind nicely in the cellar. Drink now through 2023. –JM
