Lot Details


Château d'Yquem 1979

Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

u. 3 bn, labels slightly tissue stained, 2 slight signs of seepage, very slightly sunken corks

Barley sugar nose. Real orange barley sugar taste. Very soft and mouth-coating. So fresh and young. Delicious but, obviously, simplistic in comparison with the best years. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
