D Yquem Jr 1944

Winemaker's Notes:

"Yet again proving that Yquem is virtually indestructible. I have described the wine as white but actually it was almost black - treacle dark brown anyway. It had quite enough acidity to counterbalance the sweetness but it was difficult to discern botrytis effects all these years later. Rich but certainly not the richest Yquem vintage with a decidedly brûlée character...18.5/20" JR 6/12 "Three good and consistent notes: amber gold, orange-tinged, vivid apple-green rim; lovely 'honeyed bouquet', 'lanolin', 'orange blossom' repeated; very attractive flavour, good length, dry fragrant finish...****." MB 9/98.
