This was my first experience with Chateau d'Yquem and it was glorious. The depth is impressive, and it tranports you to new places in your wine appreciation. The sweetness was beautifully balanced by lively acids, and the silky, viscous texture was incredibly sensual.

The 1982 vintage seriously maligned because of the rains that plagued the harvest in Sauternes was actually an outstanding vintage for both d Yquem and its nearby neighbor Chateau Suduiraut who brought in much of their crops before the rains did any damage. D Yquem then waited until the harvest dried out bringing in their last grapes on November 7th. The 1982 is a very forward style of d Yquem plump succulent with honeyed pineapple peach and apricot flavors exhibiting some but not a great deal of botrytis. In the mouth it is massive thick and almost as impressive as the 1983 but one does not sense the same degree of length or potential complexity. Nevertheless this is still a great d Yquem that has been somewhat overlooked. Anticipated maturity: 1997-2020. Last tasted 3/92. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
