M’s bday dinner (11/12). Tasted blind. Dark gold, heavy. Notes of brown sugar, clove, tan spice, apricot, burnt orange, peach and a little honey. In the mouth this comes across as perhaps one of the richest Sauternes I’ve tasted. Big mouth feel. Layers of complexity as the acidity comes and goes but the richness is constant. Great finish to the evening.

Dark amber in color. Apricots and saffron, orange on the nose. The palate is beautifully poised. Glycerin like texture and the sugar has receded to leave a wonderfully balanced palate. Ripe orange, honey, spice, caramel and acacia. The finish goes on and on. A brilliant bottle.

Some of that honeyed character coming out candied pineapple orange marmalade and notes of Caramel very complex smooth and creamy texture cream and still quite fresh on the finish lots of fruit and lots of zesty acidity

Amber gold. Beautiful old Sauternes nose. Baked apricots, brown sugar, earth. Impactful mouthfeel and a long finish. Great finish to a great night of food and vino.

Nice to drink a d'Yquem at the top of its game; this 75 was; superb, peachy actually in harmony with the botrytis aromatics which have subsided back to semillon honey; dried nut delicious, not overly coloured; just perfect with double cream brie; produced by locals when d'Yquem winemaker came to town with 13 and 05 to show; wow, #sauternes #bordeaux #botrytis #sémillon #sauvignon #dyquem #classy

It is not every day that you get to drink your birth year. Especially when it was 40 years ago. It is just amazing standing fully mature but with what seems like an endless life. 1975 for ever!!
