CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1921
Château d'Yquem 1921
Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé
u. 1vts, 2ts, 2t/hs, 1hs, deep amber appearance, soiled and corroded capsules, good labels

A pinnacle of its century. The harvest was very early, with 6 weeks of picking. The serious frost earlier reduced the crop significantly. The grapes dried on the vine, giving concentration but conserving acidity. The alcohol is surprisingly low at 12. 5% but the sugar is high. Amber brown with a yellow rim. A bouquet of orange nectar. A whiff of woodsmoke and bananas, currants, nuts and raisins. A lovely grapefruity flavour. Lavender honey - the lavender is very strong. Tangerines and vanilla. Finish of crushed nuts in honey. This seems indestructible, just so rich and essence-like it almost cannot age. In 2007, it melted in the mouth with cashmere softness. Molasses. A whiff of grapefruit. An open door to all the aromatics. Lavender honey, again. Cloves and oranges. Mahogany/walnuts at the end. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
