very volatile, smells of insecticide, vibrant acidity in the mouth offers excellent balnce to the, no doubt, high level of rs. Really quite lithe on the palate notes of honey, roasted nuts, and dried fruits, papaya, pineapple and apricot but this wine is hot, hot, hot and it was served at about 65F. Between the volatility and heat this is only good at best.

Located in the heart of Sauternes, the legendary Château d'Yquem spares no expense in producing the finest dessert wine in the world. The classic 1986 vintage is a real treasure from the fruit of the vine, as ripe apricot, pineapple, vanilla and sauteed hazelnut flavors bathe in exceptionally concentrated sweet fruit with honeyed botrytis that adds multi-dimensional complexities. Celebrate life and enjoy this little piece of heaven on earth!

The 1988 is a more backward-styled Yquem than the 1989, built along the lines of the extraordinary 1975. With a honeyed, smoky, orange/coconut/pineapple-scented nose, this powerful wine possesses full body, layers of highly concentrated, extracted flavors, considerable botrytis, and a sensational finish.

A beauty that's in almost perfect harmony. Full-bodied, exhibiting wet earth, honey, floral and ginger flavors that burn with intensity on the long, sweet finish. Better in 1999.

There is no other wine in the world like it, and there is no other luxury wine that can possibly justify its price as much as Yquem... The long-awaited 1986... is another fascinating effort from Yquem... Its enthralling bouquet of pineapples, sauteed hazelnuts, vanillin, and ripe apricots is breathtaking. Compellingly concentrated, its breadth as well as depth of flavor seemingly know no limits. This full-bodied, powerful, yet impeccably balanced Yquem should provide memorable drinking for 40-55 more years. Like the 1983, this is another winemaking tour de force.

A sensational Yquem, 1997 may be this estate's finest effort since 1990 (although I would not discount the 1996 turning out to be nearly as good). The 1997's light gold color is accompanied a gorgeous perfume of caramel, honeysuckle, peach, apricot, ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1997 Chateau d'Yquem 1500ml

Very classy and beautiful, packed with botrityzed flavors. Marvelous blend of vanilla, cream, tobacco-box notes, with a lot of oak on it for now but also loads of pure, clean and elegant fruit. An infant that will age for a long time. Best after 2020.

Smooth, spicy and generous, with a silky texture. Harmonious vanilla, peach, apricot, spice and honey aromas and flavors. Keeps pouring out the flavors on the long finish; brilliantly complex and generous. Should be a great one around 2010.
