Attributes
UOM: 750ml

It is a large-scaled, massively rich, unctuously-textured wine that should evolve effortlessly for a half century or more. It does not reveal the compelling finesse and complexity of the 1988 or 1986, but it is a far heavier, richer wine than either of those vintages. It is reminiscent of the 1976, with additional fat and glycerin. The wine is extremely alcoholic and rich, with a huge nose of smoky, honey-covered coconuts and overripe pineapples and apricots. As with most young vintages of Yquem, the wine's structure is barely noticeable. These wines are so highly extracted and rich yet approachable young, it is difficult to believe they will last for 50 or more years. 97 points, drink 1995-2045, www.erobertparker.com

"Deep rich tawny – waxy nose. Very very big and rewarding with good life. A kick in the heels. Very long and splendid – really enormous in every way – much bigger and rounder and deeper than the 1990. Very long. A monument. 19 Points/Drink 2005-2030." - Jancis Robinson
