Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 1995 Chateau d’Yquem is moving into its secondary aroma phase. A deep golden color, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass. The palate has a strident opening, with a slight bitter edge that lends this Yquem great tension. One can discern layers of marmalade infused with honey fruit, with a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly now, but will surely age with style over many years. (NM)
Mid gold. Honeysuckle and orange peel. Rich. Damned fine. Creamy, sweet, long. Peaches. Very perfumed. Neat and full and throat-warming. Lovely now. Clean as a whistle. (18.5/20 points) (JR)
