Cork was in poor condition and the wine was, unfortunately, that way as well.
Yellow gold in color. Medium rim variation. Medium legs. Tropical fruits and vanilla on the nose. Botrytised, caramel and tropical flavors. Medium/Full bodied. Satin-like texture. Long finish. A brilliantly tasty wine.
Yellow golden color, medium bodied and legs. Aromas of honey and spices. Unctuous. Warmed apricot flavor. Hints of orange and orange peel later. Fruity flavors linger softly for a full minute. Straightforward. Lovely wine.
Light gold in color. Minimal aromatics. Unique, smooth, creamy flavors. Light/Medium bodied. Silky texture coats the mouth for ages. Long finish, that our group timed over 120 seconds, with changing undertones throughout the finish. I think this is an underrated Yquem for it's smooth creamy, if not powerfully sweet, qualities.

Picked up a couple bottles of 2000 Chateau d'Yquem from the very fine Vinopolis Wine Shop in Portland, Oregon while there for Thanksgiving weekend. If you're ever in the area, you should check out the store, great selection...
Get some too!
Vinfolio offerring 1988 Chateau D'Yquem (375 mL) for a very competitive price in the Marketplace. I bought two of these hard to find half bottles for my collection.
Added a bottle of 1999 Yquem today at a nice cost basis. It's a vintage I haven't owned so it fit nicely into the empty slot in the collection.
A mixed week. Enjoyed a 1990 Yquem. What a great wine! Bought a 1996 (which I have not owned before) and 2002 Yquem to add to the collection. Sounds like a great week, huh? Well we opened our 1967...
Yes!Snagged a 2003 Yquem for a nice price. My third of that vintage and the best cost basis. Should drink nicely!
