"1990: An extraordinary effort, Yquem's 1990 is a rich and
fabulously superb, sweet wine. This wine also possesses lots of elegance
and finesse. The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an
exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut,
and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The
wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe
botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated
acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a
wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest
Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An

"Light youthful gold. Peachy smell redolent of botrytis.
Also a hint of fine polished wood on the nose. Very long, firm, sleek,
confident. Big and rich. 20 and a long long way to go."
