Another Slam Dunk!

Again - the wine was awesome, rich, massive and one of the longest finishes that I have come across. The apricots and lemons were bouncing around the room like they just didn't care.

Never Overlook Yquem
Score: 92 points
Drink by: 21 to 30 years
No one would mistake this for "classic" Yquem, but, make no mistake, this is damned fine Sauternes. Not as much of the honeyed botrytis aroma as in great vintages, the `99 Yquem nonetheless sports a heavenly nose of exotic fruits, lemon creme, and creme brulee. Never overlook Yquem in a good vintage, it is as meticulously made as always, and will certainly bring you happiness for at least another 25 years.
