CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1955
Château d'Yquem 1955
Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé
u. ts, label heavily bin soiled and peeling off, Nicolas stamped, corroded capsule

Glowing dark amber colour. Wonderful caramelised oranges bouquet. Touch of cloves and sweet ginger. Warm, spicy and tempting. Grand, classic, monumental nose - 'une référence', as the French say. Beautiful caramel and crème brûlée on the palate, with glorious acidity. Toast and dried apricots. Like a celestial breakfast! It continues to show its classicism, with a Cognac topaz colour and a bouquet that is a mosaic of minerality, violets and cloves, turning to caramel. A real salty tang to it which can happen with a mature Yquem. It lasts forever on the palate. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
