Château d'Yquem 1945 (1 BT)

u. hs, slightly scuffed and soiled label, slightly corroded capsule


I have had this many times - don't ask! Huge sugar, high alcohol wine. It was the year of an extremely rare frost on 2 May. There were 6 'waves' of picking over 6 weeks, similar to 2005. Wonderful nose of the caramel crust of a crème brûlée and Seville oranges. Drink with a cream made with ground almonds. So multi-dimensional, deep and intense. The volatility varies with the bottles, but the majestic quality does not. Last tasted from magnum in 2007. Incredible Seville oranges bouquet. The most pure, figgy fruit of any 1945 I have had. Pomegranates. So much balance and fabulously complete and complex. Endless on the palate. On this showing, not 3 star, but 4 star. Serena Sutcliffe, MW 


這個年份我已有幸多次品嚐,其糖分和酒 精度均頗高。這年的五月二日發生了罕見的霜凍。六星期內 進行了六次葡萄採收,與2005年的情況相似。焦糖燉蛋上 的焦糖脆皮香氣,還有西維爾苦橙的芬芳。口感像杏仁粉煮 成的忌廉般。層次複雜,深邃濃稠。她的揮發性每瓶不一, 但瑰麗的質素不變。上一次在2007年品嚐1.5公升裝,濃郁 的西維爾苦橙香氣,純淨的無花果在1945年份中無出其右。 有石榴味。平衡度出色,酒體豐滿複雜,在口腔縈繞不散。 今次的品試她不只三星,應摘得四星。施慧娜(葡萄酒大師 M.W.)
