A brilliant old Sauternes in good condition. Aromas of barley sugar and a paraffin note. M plus intensity on the palate with great length. Thanks for bringing Jim Hunter.

Tasted blind. Dark brown gold with notes of warm orange sauce and spice. Flamboyant and rich. Long finish. A perfect finish to the wines tonight. Guessed mid-70's d'Yquem.

Old enough to lose the honey drop viscosity that I don’t like about this wine and nice acidity to bolster it this long.

A little lighter extraction than standard here, but beautifully balanced and still quite fresh.

Kept a library of bottles from various special evenings: this is one of them - in memory of Pauline Gilby. Thanks for this bottle. And the joy you bought us all.

Birth year Chateau d'Yquem for my 40th birthday. There are really no words.

The winner of the night (but not much of a surprise there...)

Rich. So rich it overwhelms the acidity that is hiding I think. Is better than the dessert it is paired with.

Really just a fabulously awesome Yquem that has sweetness but also just staggering depth and complexity, served with foie gras from D’Artagnan, this bottle was gifted to us by my late mother 35 years ago, absolutely perfect!!
