Lot Details


Château d'Yquem 1996

Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

In original tissues

In 2019, this is an absolute knock-out for its glorious, creamy elegance, with both floral and citrus notes and fabulous freshness and silkiness. The balance is perfect, not the most enormous Yquem, but breathtakingly beautiful - my kind of Yquem. We had it with Gabriel Coulet's incomparable Roquefort, which has the same creaminess and was an incredible combination. Serena Sutcliffe, MW

WA 95

2019年品嚐,華貴、柔滑的典雅氣質扣人心弦,洋溢花香和 柑橘果香,充滿清新和絲滑感。平衡度出類拔萃,雖然不是 最雄渾的伊甘堡瑰釀,卻美得令人屏息,是我心愛的伊甘堡 特質。佐以無與倫比的Gabriel Coulet Roquefort藍芝士,口感 同樣柔滑,堪稱絕配。施慧娜(葡萄酒大師M.W.)

香氣濃醇集中、猛烈。口感如奶油般柔滑厚順,優雅貴氣,餘韻悠長,與1986或1988年頗為相似。另一瓶有奇美的桃 香。入口油滑,有豐美的番石榴味。伊甘堡的經典佳作,鮮 酸度極佳。2007年品嚐過一瓶六公升裝,清冽瑰麗,完美無 瑕,令人叫絕。最近一次品嚐過一瓶陳年12年的六公升裝,柔滑得令人難以置信,令我欲罷不能。施慧娜(葡萄酒大師M.W.)
