The 1981 is certainly an outstanding Yquem but it will not be considered one of this property's greatest efforts. Light golden with a moderately intense bouquet of spicy vanillin oak fresh melons and tropical fruit this full-bodied Yquem has average acidity and a plump viscous somewhat precocious feel on the palate. Remarkably long and clean in the finish it will develop relatively rapidly. Anticipated maturity: Now-2015. Last tasted 3/87.
