  • Two bottles with pannacotta & summer fruits to round off our annual Ure salmon fishing dinner party. Plenty of salmon in the river, but levels are low, so they are all resting in deep holes waiting for fresh rain to fall up the dale. A 45lb fish caught recently on a spinner at Naburn, and a 30 lb fish on the fly at Jervaulx. Back to the Yquem -- mature honey colour, but not yet dark. Fine nose of honey, lanolin & grain. Complex flavours with a touch of biscuit, noticeable acidity, mature, delicious, and with plenty left in the tank. Some fine residue at the end of both bottles.

  • Verticale du Château Margaux: Une couleur évoluée qui trahit son âge.
    Le nez est suave et voluptueux, complexe et fascinant, sur des arômes d'abricots, de crème brulée, de champignons. La bouche est riche, avec une belle acidité, une gourmandise et une grande profondeur. C'est puissant, savoureux et d'une longueur exceptionnelle. Grand vin. 96 pts
    J'ai eu la chance de tomber pile dessus!

  • Nice and mature, bright nose of dried apricot and oranges. Shows good purity to the orange infused honey on the palate, with a small undercurrent of freshness and a graceful, medium finish. Unfortunately the acidity is mostly drowned out, but otherwise this is excellent.

  • -- cork pulled 1 hr. before tasting --
    -- tasted a single pour non-blind over approx. 20 min. –
    -- 375 mL --

    NOSE: baked carrots; spicy marmalade; a touch fumey/alcoholic.

    BODY: medium amber color; medium-full bodied.

    TASTE: oranges; gently spicy; perfumey; medium-low to medium acid. Very nice, but that's about it --- certainly not mind-blowing. Gut impression score: high 80's/low 90's.

  • {375ml} Bottle and cork in vg condition, color, too. Breathtaking aromas and flavors married to fresh, caressing orchard, tropical and stone fruit flavors that persisted on the palate for minutes. A brilliant future ahead (will likely outlive me, even in this format, and I've yet to turn 50), but oh-so-good right now. d'Yquem seldom gets me to do a double take, let alone justify its lofty/silly prices, but this was just fabulous. Perhaps in the top 3 vintages of the thirty or so d'Yquem I've had over the years. highly recommended

    Slow-O 1 hour, served non-blind.

    (Yquem) We finished up with a classic 1983 Yquem, sweet and delicious with lots of candle wax and honey. It was very stony in its aromatics, still sweet and decadent as only Yquem can be, with outstanding acidity (95).
