So when you smell Yquem, you can identify Yquem. There's a very sweet orange marmalade aroma that's paired with some coconut and exotic spices. However, the palate on this baby (well, I guess it's a teenager) was a little flabby and ripe, with not quite the same amount of acidity that I'd expect. In this case, the sugar is the dominant player here. Finishes very long (as you'd expect). I preferred the much more structured '70 Coutet I had alongside to this. Nonetheless, Yquem is Yquem and Yquem is delicious.
Deep golden color with a bouquet of saffron, ginger, spices and honey. Great intensity with a slight bitter edge that lends to a great tension. Flavors of tangerine and honeyed fruit with a spicy and long finish.
