Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997 Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest although there is a lot going on.

Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997 Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest although there is a lot going on. Light gold with a tight but promising nose of roasted hazelnuts intermixed with creme brulee vanilla beans honey orange marmalade and peaches this medium to full-bodied offering reveals loads of power in its restrained measured personality. There is admirable acidity weight texture and purity in this impeccably made Yquem. However patience will be a virtue. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2060.
