Source: Epic Cellars

This is an outstanding Yquem, but I have been plagued by bad bottles in tastings, which I hope is only attributable to poor storage and handling. The top bottles exhibit plenty of ripe, concentrated tropical fruit and botrytis. Full bodied, deep golden in color, with a spicy, caramel, toasted roti, fat flavor, this big, rich wine is developing quickly for an Yquem. Although irrefutably outstanding, this may be a slightly overrated vintage for Yquem. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010.

A celebrated vintage--a beautiful wine. Thick, rich and dense, with banana, tropical, dried fig flavors. The texture is creamy and the balance is marvelous.--Yquem vertical. Best after 2010. (PM) Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1971 Yquem, Chateau d' 750ml
