Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

97 WS / 19.5 JR

Classic, exciting Yquem. Silky, creamy and round, yet armed with plenty of intense botrytized flavors--dried apricot, raisin, dried fig. Full-bodied, with caramel and butterscotch complexity, it ends on a very intense finish.--Yquem vertical. Drink now through 2050. - Wine Spectator

Great wine at its peak but showing no sign of fading. Tawny with a greenish tinge at the rim. Gloriously tangy. 120 g/l. Great balance with some gunpowder and smokiness. It was extremely hot when the grapes were picked. Amazing that it's as good as it is in an era that pre-dates sophisticated temperature control. Extremely rich with notes of dried fruits. Great balance with strong dried citrus peel notes. Vital. Slightly more pronounced acidity than another bottle I was lucky enough to try late last year in London. - Jancis Robinson
