This year is a perfect example of a vintage that was much better for the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes than it was for the red wines. Yquem produced its greatest wine since the twin titans of 1975 and 1976. Medium golden with a big opulent honeyed oaky flowery tropical fruit bouquet this wine is rich and concentrated has very good acidity a lot of botrytis and a stunning finish. It is a great success and it continues to evolve at a snail's pace. Anticipated maturity: Now-2035.
