1999 Château d'Yquem Sauternes

Wine Description

A sensational Yquem, 1999 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1999's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, and smoky wood. Full-bodied and unctuously-textured, with good underlying acidity as well as loads of sweetness and glycerin, it looks to be a great vintage for this renowned Sauternes estate. Note: Yquem spends 42 months in 100% new oak.
