    (Yquem) But it wasn’t over! There were two dessert wines to go, the first being a 1967 Yquem. The Yquem’s nose was sweet and musky, classic with its candle wax, nut and caramel aromas. While it came across mature, its color was so young. Wolf picked on it, citing ‘a hint of bitterness and not quite perfect.’ After getting to know Wolf’s collection intimately, it is easier to understand how ‘not quite perfect’ is a letdown! It was still clean and fresh to me, with delicious flavors of caramel, orange marmalade, butterscotch, peach and apricot. It didn’t last long in my glass - yum (96).

    (Château d'Yquem) Beautiful medium dark orange color with red lights and pale meniscus; heavenly orange, caramel and creme brulee nose; tart orange, creme brulee, juicy, with great depth, apricot, dates, good acidity; long finish

    Bipin's Thanksgiving, 1/21/2008 96 points

    (d’Yquem) Last and certainly not least in this flight was the legendary 1967 d’Yquem. Bipin remarked after one smell, ‘Yquem is Yquem.’ It had the most complex and exotic nose, honeyed of course, but also possessed marzipan, grilled nuts, crème brulee and musk. Its long and delicious palate was full of apricot, nut and apple flavors. Bipin continued that it was ‘very round like a Pomerol.’ It was clearly ahead of the pack, seemingly mature but still possessing hidden acidity. Candle wax flavors emerged in this very fine and slinky Yquem. Charles Chevalier commented how 2007 was going to be a great Sauternes year, by the way

    (Château d'Yquem) From half bottles - lovely peach, amber gold color. The nose was the beautiful apricot one expects, with hints of hazelnut. From these small bottles, the wine was drinking beautifully now; rich, concentrated and unctuous apricot and nutty ambrosia, with a super long finish.
