And finally a particularly forward vintage of this superlative wine which showed all the richness and concentration that Yquem can muster even if not much nerve or tension. It stood up beautifully to the Roquefort served with it, cleverly and successfully sandwiched in sweet apple slices. This vintage was not featured in the recent Los Angelese Yquem vertical reported on www.jancisrobinson.com/articles/20071127_3>here.

the 1999, 1997 and 1996 were outstanding -- earning 94, 95 and 92 points, respectively.
The 1999 was particularly impressive for the vintage. It was superbly focused and beautiful on the nose, with sugared lemons, tropical fruit and maple syrup character. Full-bodied and thick, yet very fine, it was extremely sweet and long.
