Lot Details


Château d'Yquem 1953

Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

u. 6vts, 4ts, labels slightly soiled, 1 has the Nicolas stamp, 5 capsules corroded

This has amazingly low sugar for Yquem (71g) but high alcohol (14.4%). Unbelievably fragrant bouquet of orange blossom and heather in flower. Tarry/sweet taste. A touch of salt in there too, as one sometimes sees in mature vintages. Raisins finish, rich and lingering. Serena Sutcliffe, MW

以伊甘堡純釀而言,此作的含糖量出奇地低(71克),酒精含量卻很高(14.4 %)。橙花與石南花芳馥裊裊,口感濃稠甜蜜,更帶有一點鹹香,成熟年份偶見的特色 。收結時有葡萄乾的香甜,餘韻豐厚綿長。施慧娜(葡萄酒大師M.W.)
