1973 Yquem


82Average Score
flagBordeaux / France

Surprisingly successful in what was a mediocre vintage for the wines of this region, the 1973 Yquem is overtly oaky and too spicy, but has very good concentration, less sweetness and botrytis than in vintages like 1975 and 1976, and is well balanced, fat, and long on the palate (only 12% of the crop was used for Yquem). Anticipated maturity: Now. Last tasted, 3/84. Jan 1998, www.robertparker.com
