Heavenly orange zest flavour. So rounded, so rich, so tropically luscious. I think this has become even more awesome with time. It can be tarry on the nose, with bitter orange zests. Tremendous grapefruit lusciousness on the palate - now one sees why the late Jean-Pierre Moueix, a great connoisseur of Yquem, compared it with the 1937. Pure beauty as it develops in the glass.
