Château d'Yquem Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1983

$539

The 1983 is among the most concentrated wines from this property over the last 20 years, with a staggering display of extract and a mind-boggling amount of glycerin...will last for almost 100 years...At present, the 1983 is enormous, with huge, honeyed, pineapple, coconut, and caramel flavors, massive extract, and an unctuous quality barely framed by acidity and new oak...Anticipated maturity: 2005-2050. Robert Parker

Had with freshly seared foie gras. After 1 hour this was drop dead. Mesmerizing aromas, balance and freshness. Crazy texture. Just ridiculous.

midnight snack last night: 11 liters (5L & 6L) of Château d'Yquem​ 1983 shared among thirsty friends. Ravished you with marmalade and apricot flavors that filled the mouth with a nectarous, almost erotic intensity. Someone opened a big bag of Cheetos​ and a new favorite food & wine pairing was discovered: '83 #Yquem and Cheetos - sweet-salty, high-low bliss.
