Yquem is without doubt, one of the world's finest wine producers, of whom Robert Parker comments: "There is no other wine in the world like it, and there is no other luxury wine that can possibly justify its price as much as Yquem. The remarkable amount of painstaking labor necessary to produce the nectar known as Yquem is almost impossible to comprehend."
Château d'Yquem 1954 is a classic. Very elegant with aromas of sherry, brown sugar and caramel and a taste of hazelnuts. Voluminous and deep.
"A delicate Yquem .. with bitter- and mandarin orange and lemon notes. Of medium body, with a nicely rounded palate and a good finish." Wine Spectator (May 1999)
