CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1937
Château d'Yquem 1937
Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé
u. 1bn, 2 vts, 1 bin soiled label with Mahler-Besse neck slip and corroded capsule, other labels slightly scuffed and stained, with 1 capsule slightly stained, corks visible and fully branded

This was a dry, but not very hot year. 33 days of picking over 4 weeks without rain, beginning on 21 September and finishing on 6 November. Deep glowing amber. Nose of tangerines and spice. The nutmeg creeps up on you. A note of drying petals - pot pourri. Glorious crème brûlée on the palate. Tarry, Seville orange marmalade. Burnt, caramelised oranges. Creamier and creamier in the glass. On its 70th birthday, it had a very smoky nose, fig skins and pomegranates. Will 1986, with which it is sometimes compared, ever be as concentrated? Kumquats. A huge, mythical mouthful. Massive. Liquorice. Terrific, pure richness. Smoky fig skins in the oven at the end. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
