Chateau d'Yquem 1995 - Bottle
Neal Martin (The Wine Advocate) 95/100: Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The 1995 Chateau d’Yquem is moving into its secondary aroma phase. A deep golden colour, it has a dense and almost Barsac-like bouquet with tangerine, apricot, acacia and melted candle wax. It displays good intensity, unfolding beautifully in the glass. The palate has a strident opening, with a slight bitter edge that lends this Yquem great tension. One can discern layers of marmalade infused with honey fruit, with a powerful, spicy finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is drinking perfectly now, but will surely age with style over many years. Tasted March 2014. eRobertParker.com.June, 2014
MWH Wines: The finest d'Yquem since the perfect 1990 and in our opinion probably the finest d'Yquem since, with the obvious exception of the 2001. Rich and honeyed, with layer upon layer of honeyed, butterscotch and candied fruit notes, perfectly balancing citrus acidity and a lovely warm and evolving finish, this is precision and complexity that only d'Yquem can achieve.
