1996 Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes

- Type: Dessert / Fruit Wine
- Country: France
- Region: Bordeaux, Barsac / Sauternes
"There is admirable acidity, weight, texture, and purity in this impeccably made Yquem. ...Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997, Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest, although there is a lot going on. Light gold with a tight but promising nose of roasted hazelnuts intermixed with creme brulee, vanilla beans, honey, orange marmalade, and peaches, this medium to
full-bodied offering reveals loads of power in its restrained, measured personality." Reviewed by Robert Parker. - 95 pts
