Wine Description

(From 1994 Vintage) This wine has a beautiful gold clear first powerful nose with notes of lemons, citrus zest, marmalade, a hint of iodine from all ease. A restlessness, spicy nuances, liquorice, mint and saffron take over. A lot of complexity in this vintage remarkable intensity. On the palate, the attack is round.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 1955 Vintage) Nestled in the southeasy of Bordeaux, Château d’Yquem is the world’s most sought after dessert wine – the benchmark by which all other dessert wines are judged.

    (From 1982 Vintage) Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Medium gold; reserved nose, slightly petrolly; quite rich, plump, spicy, reasonable concentrated, fine acidity, lemon drops, not as structured as most Yquems; very good length, slightly tarry finish.
