Lot Details


Château d'Yquem 1983

Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

1 risen cork, 1 sign of old seepage

At an incredible Fête des Rois dinner in 2020, drunk of course with La Galette des Rois which is my favourite 'sweet nothing' of all time! And this bottle was the best 1983 I have ever had, gorgeous in its freshness and citric beauty. There is a real peachiness to it, with silky purity and endless dimension of flavour. Some 1983s have a tarry botrytis element, but here there is zingy, zesty fruit to match the sweetness, with a finish that defies the clock. We were all stunned - this wine is destined for eternal life. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
