Lot #465. d'Yquem 1981

Description: Consists of 1 Half Bottle, 0.375L
Score: 94-96 NM.
"The dark horse of the Yquem tasting at CECWINE in November 2004. A slight deeper colour compared to the '79 and '80. Rich honey and peach with superb definition and focus. The palate has great balance and verve with exquisite freshness and joie-de-vivre. Apricot and orange. There is a lot of finesse and grace here. It its harmony and texture, rather than concentration that elevates it above the others." Neal Martin, Wine Journal, Jan 2000
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $200
