1983 Château d'Yquem Sauternes / Tasting Note Jeff Leve ( The Wine Cellar Insider ) :
- The colour seemed more developed than previous bottles, with its orange, honey and copper hue. The nose grabs you as soon as the wine hits the glass. Honey coated tropical fruit, pineapple, apricot, vanilla custard and orange marmalade flavors are in full force, culminating with a sweet, spicy, fresh layer of fruits slathered in honey. From a 375, the bottle was popped and poured.
96 points - Tasted Feb 2, 2016.
- Deep gold in colour, this honeyed, pineapple, peach, apricot and crème brulee scented wine delivers the goods. Intense levels of sweet, ripe, fat, lush, tropical fruit easily glide over your palate. The long, decadent finish is truly luxurious. The perfect way to end a splendid evening.

Presentation of the wine:
Deemed the world's greatest white wine, the Château d'Yquem is located on a small hill and benefits from a micro-climate and exceptional soil. The vineyard encompasses no less than 150 plots of different soil, and is pampered throughout the year, with each individual vine undergoing an average of 50 different annual treatments. The selection process in Yquem is particularly stringent, with a local saying holding that a single vine makes a single glass of wine. Harvesting is carried out a minimum of four different times (seven in 1997!) in order to ensure the grapes harvested have reached perfect maturity and have been affected by noble rot.
This marvellous wine unfurls aromas of peach, pineapple, coconut, nutmeg and cinnamon toast, caramel and vanilla underpinned by shades, or from the new oak. Boasting extraordinary richness and concentration, Yquem wines have incredible ageing potential. "Guitry once said that the silence that follows Mozart is still Mozart. I say that the moments that follow a sip or Yquem are still Yquem.
