White - sweet- Sauternes - France
The excellent 1962 from Ch. d'Yquem. Label and capsule in excellent condition; cork also appears in excellent condition (no signs of seepage); level base of neck; and a lovely golden colour with excellent clarity; a small amount of tartrate sediment visible.
Sereena Sutcliffe MW (Sotheby's) says:
Wonderful orange peel, fruit and richness on the nose and palate. Intense class. Enormous everlasting flavour. The acidity has held up the stupendous flavour and impact. This is supercharged Yquem at the highest level.
I am selling some gems from my private cellar, built up over 40 years, in order to buy wines I have yet to experience. All of my old wines were sourced from the cellars of other connoisseurs. Keep a look out for my other bottles!

Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.Fast delivery and very good package. Sadly the bottle was corked and damaged. Non-drinkable. Maybe cellared in too much heat?Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.That was unfortunate, but there is always a risk with older wines. The description clearly stated the inverted ullage, so there was evidently a chance that there could be some oxidation, hence no reserve price in the sale. Whilst in my possession the bottle was stored cool and dark, however I cannot say if it was badly stored prior to my ownership. I have drunk Champagnes with similar ullages, some have been excellent while others have been less than good. In the final analysis no one can guarantee that the contents of an old bottle are in pristine condition. There is always a risk.
Toppie toppie! :)
