A bottle purchased at the Chateau 24 years ago was shared by a guest as a surprise at the end of dinner at a restaurant in Chicago. It evolved quickly from a perfect d"yquem (no need to describe - we all know what that is) to a very good sauterne. Best of class shows through when cellaring is maintained. It was paired against a 1982 Tokay and 2001 d'Yquem - blind - and the only difference initally was color. Drinking something that is 114+ years old is an amazing experience - having it be perfect is a bonus. What an evening!

(Yquem) Last but not least was a magnum of 1900 Yquem. ‘Caramel sex heaven’ seemed like an accurate descriptor at the time and also a good place to be going right about then. It could have been considered old to some, but mature and wise to others like me
