Editorial Reviews for Château Dyquem' Château Dyquem Premier Cru Classé Supérieur'
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.

A charming Yquem that's round, thick, dense and very honeyed. But it doesn't taste of botrytized, dried fruit flavors (the château tried to wait for noble rot and harvested late, into December). While creamy and opulent, it's also refined. Best after 2015.
An extraordinary effort in this powerful, blockbuster vintage, Yquem's 1990 is the richest of the fabulous triogy of superb sweet wine vintages in Bordeaux: 1988, 1989, 1990. This wine also possesses more elegance and finesse than many 1990s at least at this early stage of their development. The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. It may mature at a quicker pace than the 1989, 1988, or 1986, but all of these wines will easily pass their half-century birthdays in splendid condition. An awesome Yquem! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2050+.
The greatest wine of Sauternes and , according to the famous 1855 classification, of the entire Bordeaux region. It is sweet, golden and apparently, almost immortal.
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.
The favorite sweet wine of millionaires, Chateau d'Yquem has, not unexpectedly, turned in a brilliant effort with their newly released 1989. It is a large-scaled, massively rich, unctuously-textured wine that should evolve effortlessly for a half century or more. It does not reveal the compelling finesse and complexity of the 1988 or 1986, but it is a far heavier, richer wine than either of those vintages. It is reminiscent of the 1976, with additional fat and glycerin. The wine is extremely alcoholic and rich, with a huge nose of smoky, honey-covered coconuts and overripe pineapples and apricots. As with most young vintages of Yquem, the wine's structure is barely noticeable. These wines are so highly extracted and rich yet approachable young, it is difficult to believe they will last for 50 or more years. The 1989 is the richest Yquem made in the eighties, and it has an edge in complexity over the powerhouse 1983. It remains to be seen whether this wine will develop the extraordinary aromatic complexity possessed by the promising 1988 and 1986 Yquems. Last tasted 11/97
Truly superb. Yellow with a gold hue. Intense spice, honey and dried orange peel aromas. Full-bodied, very sweet and very alive. Vibrant Sauternes that goes on and on on the palate. Doesn't get much better than this. Beautiful now,but wait. Best after 2010.
