CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1899
Château d'Yquem 1899
Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé
u. hs, short capsule reveals 'Rebouché en 1988,' bin-stained and scuffed label, bin-soiled capsule, sticker adhered to top of capsule, slightly sunken cork

Low in sugar by today's standards and high in acidity. Great concentration of noble rot. Mahogany colour. Old leather. Bouquet of peach skins. A touch of eau de Cologne it is so scented. Absolute silk. Almost meaty too. Great complexity, amassed over 108 years at my last tasting of this bastion of history. A real taste of French toast. A world apart - one is transported to another age when contemplating, and consuming, this wine. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
