I thought it might be a little dark but this is nicely resolved and on the young side. Lots of unctuous apricot and creme brûlée, good acidity, Exemplary stuff

Tasted blind, although with more than 10 straight bagged bottles served that are all 1990s the entire group and the dog all guess this as the 1990 d'Yquem. Great weight in the glass, rich and powerful. Notes of apricot, tan spice, some stones and rocks and a little crème brulee. Great finish to an evening of 1990 bottles where we could compare and contrast much of what was great from that year. Thanks Murray!

Yeah...in a whole other orbit. A Spinal Tap Level 11. So rich, no fat. No flab. This is the full figured girl you know you always wanted to date. High praise indeed. This babe is a diva.

Pure gold colour. Ripe peach , pineapple , creme brûlée. Very rich on the palate , lovely candied lemon peel , pineapple and caramel . Very long and rich with balancing acidity . At a lovely stage , though will last and probably improve for many years . Quite a stunning wine . In the end we enjoyed this wine over 3 days , it is still a baby really , not showing much development , should be great over the next 30 years
