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.

Who can ignore the awesome bouquet of spices, honeyed fruit, pineapples, bananas, coconuts, and overripe melons? This full-bodied, viscous, luscious wine has been absolutely delicious since bottling, given its relatively low acidity and precocious personality. It is one of the few true great vintages of Yquem that can actually be drunk with tremendous pleasure at such a young age. Eighty percent of the harvest made it into the final wine. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025. - Robert Parker
