Ch. d’Yquem Sauternes 1991

Sweet Wine from France - Bordeaux
Review Date : 18-Mar-2016
This has an even, light golden-yellow colour with light orange hues. More elegant and slender, the aromas of barley sugar and caramel show with butterscotch elements and nutty nuances. Ginger and spices add some detail. Some cork taint character is present. Tight and compressed on palate, this has elegance of style, though the flavours are restrained and shy. Tropical fruits, barley sugar and toffee show with nutty and caramel nuances. The TCA is less obvious on palate, but there is grip. This is a narrowed Yquem, with caramel and nutty development, and possibly scalped by TCA. 16.5+/20 Mar 2016 RRP $N/A Bright light golden-yellow in colour, the nose was somewhat masked by TCA cork-taint mustiness. Some honey underneath, and a little volatile lift still showing. On palate a medium-weighted wine, smaller in scale, no doubt attenuated by the mustiness. However, the wine had richness and some lusciousness in a firm way. Insufficient freshness and acidity.  16.5/20 Aug 2010
