Chateau d'Yquem is my "desert island" wine. This was a very good year. Great, deep amber color. The usual full-bodied "nectar of the Gods" honey mouthfeel and taste with apricot lingering never-endingly. Sweet heaven in a bottle.

The 1987, from a difficult vintage, is a medium-weight d'Yquem, with enticing oaky, tropical fruit aromas, but the unctuosity and profound depth of flavor so obvious in top years are not present. Anticipated maturity: Now-2010. Last tasted, 1/93. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1987 Chateau d'Yquem 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

Nestled in the southeasy of Bordeaux, Château d’Yquem is the world’s most sought after dessert wine – the benchmark by which all other dessert wines are judged.
