Château d'Yquem--Vintage 1989
12 bottles per lot
Château d'Yquem--Vintage 1989 Sauternes, 1er grand cru classé. Château-bottled Offered in carton Levels: All into neck; excellent appearance "The wine is extremely alcoholic and rich, with a huge nose of smokey, honey-covered coconuts and overripe pineapples and apricots. As with 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. The 1989 is the richest Yquem made in the eighties, and it has an edge in complexity over the powerhouse 1983. It remains to be seen whether this wine will develop the extraordinary aromatic complexity possessed by the promising 1988 and 1986 Yquems." Robert Parker Wine Advocate, #98 (Apr 1995) 12 bottles per lot
