From one of the 20th century's celebrated vintages for Yquem this bottle stands up to all the hype--unforgettable for its purity elegance harmony its "total" everything. Powerful yet it seems weightless on the palate almost defying gravity as it tangos around with its vanilla peach and apricot flavors. Seamless nearly endless finish. Easy to understand its reputation as the greatest Yquem of the last 35 years.--Yquem vertical. Drink now through 2018. –PM

Very full and luscious and sweet with a hint of tropical fruit – something exotic. Very long and complete. Very very sweet at the beginning and a little dry and savoury at the end. A very good bottle. 18.5/20

Served from an ex-chateau bottle. While the 1971 Yquem appears to have been overlooked, I have always felt that the much-lauded 1967 Chateau d’Yquem has never quite lived up the billing. Picking commenced on September 26... Served from an ex-chateau bottle. While the 1971 Yquem appears to have been overlooked, I have always felt that the much-lauded 1967 Chateau d’Yquem has never quite lived up the billing. Picking commenced on September 26, and the first 76 barrels were brought into the winery by October 3, even though light showers interrupted the picking. The legend was built on a sudden spell of hot weather in mid-October when even night temperatures did not fall, leading to an explosion of noble rot. In total, 409 barrels were eventually priced. It has a slightly light color than the 1971. The nose is elegant with scents of mandarin, marmalade, wet wool and Japanese yuzu, although it distinctly lacks the same energy as the 1971. The palate is well-balanced with fine tension and beautifully judged acidity. It feels more mature than the 1971 and while it has not reached the end of its drinking plateau, it certainly feel the age in its bones. It has commendable length, but not near that of top vintages such as 2009, 2001, 1990 or the 1971. Drink now-2025. Tasted March 2014. - NEAL MARTIN
