It does not explode and charm like the '75, this is much more reserved. The palate is very powerful and focused with mineral, quince and wild honey. Very elegant with a soft texture, but not the hedonism or the ebullience of the '75. Certainly a lovely Yquem, but the 75 has more joie-de-vivre. Drink now until 2025.

So ethereal it's the sort of wine one could drink almost every night.--Yquem vertical. Drink now... This is silky and beautifully creamy in the mouth.
