Tasted at a charity event (GGFAGC/11). I love sauternes and even a "bad" Yquem is something amazing to try. That being said, this was disappointing. I beautiful bronze colour gave way to a heavily orange bouquet which was a cause for concern. When I tasted this, I wouldn't say that the bottle was flawed but something was definitely off with this. Overly orangy and severely tangy. I realize that over the years I've been very fortunate to try a number of very old Yquems and greatly appreciate anytime I can try an aged one, but tonight this bottle fell very short of my hopes. Still, a treat to partake.
