This is the best Yquem between 1990 and 2001. It has an exuberant, intense nose of honey, barley sugar, quince just and a touch of marmalade. Very well defined, unabashed. The palate is concentrated with a superb level of botrytis, viscous texture, vibrant honeyed fruit with a citrus edge and wonderful acidity. As harmonious as a Verdi, as pretty as a Mozart sonata. Drink now-2050. Tasted March 2010. Drinking range: 2010 - 2050 Rating: 96 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (May 2010)

Compared with the flamboyant aromatics of the 1997, Yquem's 1996 plays it closer to the vest, although there is a lot going on. Light gold with a tight but promising nose of roasted hazelnuts intermixed with creme brulee, vanilla beans, honey, orange marmalade, and peaches, this medium to full-bodied offering reveals loads of power in its restrained, measured personality. There is admirable acidity, weight, texture, and purity in this impeccably made Yquem. However, patience will be a virtue. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2060. .
