1961 Yquem

flagBordeaux / France

The year 1961 was only a mediocre vintage for Barsac and Sauternes; however, the sales of these wines have long been helped by the greatness of this vintage for the red wines of Bordeaux. I have consistently found Yquem's 1961 to be a muscular, out of balance wine, with a burnt character to the bouquet, and overly oaky, aggressive flavors that lack this estate's ripeness and great richness. The wine is now beginning to dry out and become more awkward. Drink it up. Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 4/82. Jan 1998, www.robertparker.com
