"...sheer perfection: creamy, honeyed, orange blossom bouquet of impenetrable depth; rich, perfect weight, flavour, balance and length, with another 20 years to go."
...aromas of vanillin oak, tropical fruit, pineapples, honeyed peaches, and grilled almonds. There is exceptionally crisp acidity that pulls all of the massive extract into precise focus.
A celebrated vintage. Thick, rich and powerful, this Yquem is packed with an immense concentration of flavors. Tastes almost tannic, tough and unyielding, but the rough, awkward edges should smooth out with time.
