100Wine Spectator

From one of the 20th century's celebrated vintages for Yquem, this bottle stands up to all the hype--unforgettable for its purity, elegance, harmony, its "total" everything. Powerful, yet it seems weightless on the palate,...

*****Michael Broadbent

...caramelly and crusty...actually magnificent

96Robert M. Parker Jr.

...with a full intensity bouquet of vanillin spice, honey, ripe pineapples, and coconut...has layers of sweet, opulent fruit, excellent balance, and a hefty, powerful finish.

93The Wine Advocate

The nose is elegant with scents of mandarin, marmalade, wet wool and Japanese yuzu, although it distinctly lacks the same energy as the 1971. The palate is well-balanced with fine tension and beautifully judged acidity.

18.5Jancis Robinson

...Very full and luscious and sweet..


France, Bordeaux, Sauternes

Sauternes makes the world’s most famous dessert wines. Though the appellation lies within the Graves region of Bordeaux’s left bank, the appellation makes only sweet wines from white grapes, primarily Semillon sometimes blended with small amounts of Muscadelle. The five communes within Sauternes are Barsac, Bommes, Fargues, Preignac and Sauternes. Barsac also has its own appellation and, typically, Barsac wines are slightly drier and lighter than other Sauternes. Sauternes are made when weather conditions result in a mold called Botrytis cinerea developing on the grapes, which causes them to become especially sweet. Sauternes are not produced every vintage, so successful vintages become especially collectible. Sauternes estates were classified in 1855, and Château d’Yquem, the appellation’s most prestigious estate, was ranked in a class by itself as a Premier Grand Cru. Château d’Yquem wines are among the most prized wines in the world.
