Château d'Yquem Premier Grand Cru Sauternes Half Btl 1995

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Half-Bottle, 375ml The best of the best, Chateau D'Yquem stands alone as the grandest and greatest of the wines of Sauternes. Single botrytis-infused berries are hand selected in the meticulous and painstaking winemaking process that puts Yquem at the pinnacle and kept it there for centuries. It's a rare exciting find to come across a twenty year old Chateau D'Yquem. The Wine Advocate recently tasted and reviewed this wine scoring in 95 points and saying "The 1995 Chateau d’Yquem is moving into its secondary aroma phase. A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass. The palate has a strident opening, with a slight bitter edge that lends this Yquem great tension. One can discern layers of marmalade infused with honey fruit, with a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly now, but will surely age with style over many years. Tasted March 2014."
