    November 16, 2004 - 1990 Yquem, Sauternes/Barsac, Bordeaux, France
    Always a classic. My favorite of the famous trilogy. But tonight's bottle was slightly off in my opinion. Yes, it was a very, very good to great Sauternes, but it was not the ethereal 1990 Yquem that I have tasted on other occasions. It seemed to lack the freshness of acid and density of botrytis infected fruit that the prime examples possess. That aside, it was a very good Sauternes. Dang, I feel spoiled!
