A celebrated vintage. Thick, rich and powerful, this Yquem is packed with an immense concentration of flavors. Tastes almost tannic, tough and unyielding (like many '75 red Bordeaux), but the rough, awkward edges should smooth out with time.--Yquem v... Wine Spectator. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1975 Yquem, Chateau d' 750ml

The 1975 may turn out to be the greatest of the modern-day Yquems. When fully mature in another 25-30 years, it may rival the extraordinary 1937 and 1921. This wine continues to evolve at a stubbornly slow pace. It is far more backward than recent vintages such as 1983 and 1986. Nevertheless, it is awesomely concentrated, has perfect balance, and displays the telltale Yquem aromas of vanillin oak, tropical fruit, pineapples, honeyed peaches, and grilled almonds. There is exceptionally crisp acidity that pulls all of the massive extract into precise focus. This is a wine of astonishing power and finesse, with a finish that must be tasted to be believed. It is a monumental effort that may well justify a perfect score in another decade. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2060.
