1994 Yquem

flagBordeaux / France

Tasted several times, many of them blind and proof of Yquem fallibility. Strong peach/apricot nose with a touch of fig. Not as voluptuous following the Nairac 1990 but what this wine lacks is complexity, botrytis and intelligence. Tasted blind it seemed ordinary compared to others. Approach with caution. Last tasted May 2005 at CECWINE. Simply an ordinary Sauternes (even from this, a double magnum). The nose seems a bit confected whilst the palate is linear and cloying, lacking definition and vigor, sitting on the palate and going nowhere. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate
