Description

    Chateau d'Yquem 1990
    Sauternes
    owc, amber color
    Bottle (12)


    "Truly superb. Yellow with a gold hue. Intense spice, honey and dried orange peel aromas. Full-bodied, very sweet and very alive. Vibrant Sauternes that goes on and on on the palate. Doesn't get much better than this. Beautiful now, but wait." (95 pts. James Suckling, Wine Spectator, Aug. 2000)

    "An extraordinary effort, Yquem's 1990 is a rich and fabulously superb, sweet wine. This wine also possesses lots of elegance and finesse. The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An awesome Yquem!" (99 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #122, Apr. 1999)


    Estimate: $3,000 - $4,000.
