CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1996
Château d'Yquem 1996
Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé
Excellent levels and appearance

Very scented, concentrated and heady on the nose. Glorious creamy rich texture combined with great elegance and length, reminiscent of 1986/1988. Another bottle had a great peachy bouquet. Incredibly unctuous, guava richness on the palate. A hugely original Yquem, with stunning fresh acidity. In 2007, an Imperial was absolutely show-stopping, perfect, icy beauty that was truly awe-inspiring. Last tasted from Imperial at 12 years old - incredibly creamy. I could not get enough of it.
