White - sweet- Sauternes - France

Bottle size: Demi (0.375L)
Region: Bordeaux

The excellent 1962 from Ch. d'Yquem. Label and capsule in excellent condition; cork also appears in excellent condition (no signs of seepage); level base of neck; and a lovely golden colour with excellent clarity; a small amount of tartrate sediment visible.

Sereena Sutcliffe MW (Sotheby's) says:

Wonderful orange peel, fruit and richness on the nose and palate. Intense class. Enormous everlasting flavour. The acidity has held up the stupendous flavour and impact. This is supercharged Yquem at the highest level.

I am selling some gems from my private cellar, built up over 40 years, in order to buy wines I have yet to experience. All of my old wines were sourced from the cellars of other connoisseurs. Keep a look out for my other bottles!

    Giving me a bad review for something out of my control is not very polite. Was it too much trouble to email me to check or to look for online tracking information? If you did take the trouble, you would have discovered that the package is in Sweden and has been with whoever is responsible for its delivery since 20th November. Maybe you missed its delivery.

    Response by seller
    Chinese Customs rejected import of the bottle, stating that the purchaser did not do what was requested by Customs. I had contacted Catawiki and explained this. I was waiting for someone to tell me what the next step is. If you wish the wine to be shipped to China once again, there will be an additional cost. If you would rather that the wine was sold again, I can then refund the purchase price or, if the sale price is lower than originally paid, refund the lesser amount. If you need a translator, contact me through Catawiki customer support

    Fast delivery and very good package. Sadly the bottle was corked and damaged. Non-drinkable. Maybe cellared in too much heat?

    That was unfortunate, but there is always a risk with older wines. The description clearly stated the inverted ullage, so there was evidently a chance that there could be some oxidation, hence no reserve price in the sale. Whilst in my possession the bottle was stored cool and dark, however I cannot say if it was badly stored prior to my ownership. I have drunk Champagnes with similar ullages, some have been excellent while others have been less than good. In the final analysis no one can guarantee that the contents of an old bottle are in pristine condition. There is always a risk.
