An extraordinary effort, Yquem's 1990 is a rich and fabulously superb, sweet wine. This wine also possesses lots of elegance and finesse. The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An awesome Yquem! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2050+. Robert Parker

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.

Just about to shed its last layer of clothes and is becoming bare to the world. Caramel, butterscotch, candied walnuts, muscatels, honey on figs and aldehyde.
