1990 Chateau d’Yquem, Sauternes (RT 100) Popped and poured from a 375ml. Truly a profound showing this night, it shows up as if it was bottled just a few years ago rather than showing its 28 years of age. Fresh, bright, polished and extremely classy, its light hue hides its age as well. The bouquet delivers astonishingly fresh, vibrant notes of honeyed tropical fruits, pineapple, dried apricots and white peach and botrytis spice in spades. Its palate is layered in complexity and conveys a sense of absolute weightlessness. With each sip something new emerges. A wine a staggering grace, dessert wine simply doesn’t get any better than this! Drink now – 2050+, this is almost immortal. One of the great collectable wines of France, many older vintages are available going back to the late 1800s. This vintage currently trades in the $350-500+ range for a 750ml., current vintages can be found in the $300 and up range.
