Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 1981

Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes 1981

Sku: 068246

 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jan 1998)
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.
