1975 d'Yquem, Sauternes (very high shoulder, torn label)

SKU #1184543 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1975 Château d'Yquem stands as one of the towering successes of that decade and at 40 years of age, it shows no signs of losing any of its prowess. This bottle represented one of the best that I have encountered. Iridescent in color, the bouquet soars from the glass, a pyrotechnic display of quince, Clementine, honey and a touch of aszu, lending it a slight Tokaji-like personality. It is beautifully defined and intense. The palate is pure and detailed with a killer line of acidity, vibrant honeyed fruit and a mellifluous finish that is now fully expressive. It vies with the imperious 1971 as the greatest Yquem of that era. This is simply magnificent. (NM) Inner quote mark (6/2015)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A celebrated vintage. Thick, rich and powerful, this Yquem is packed with an immense concentration of flavors. Tastes almost tannic, tough and unyielding (like many '75 red Bordeaux), but the rough, awkward edges should smooth out with time.--Yquem vertical. Best after 2020. Inner quote mark (5/1999)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Utterly fabulous. It was served blind but was pretty obvious what it was. Deep orangey caramel colour. Creamy texture and extremely heady on the nose. Barley sugar and wonderful vitality and balance. Surely this would convince the most committed hater of sweet wines. 1975 is such a great Sauternes vintage. (20/20 points) Inner quote mark (12/2015)
