Dark brown gold with a huge nose. Notes of tropical fruit including oranges and ripe citrus, toffee, apricots, crème brulee, stones and some amazing spice. In the mouth this expands as the dense fruit is able to roam about. While this is a fruit driven experience, there is still a ton of acidity there. This bottle was maybe a bit more advanced than some others we've had of this in the past, it still hit the bullseye and finished off the evening in style. (Bday 13 of 13)

Soft sweet marmalade. Pretty floral notes. Nutty and supple with a warm sweetness. Wonderful

Tasted blind. Dark amber gold color. Notes of brown sugar, poached pear, warm orange. Rich and round in the mouth. A fitting end to a great lineup tonight. Thks Stan!!

Tasted blind. Dark gold. Aromatic honeyed nose with notes of brown sugar, cardamom spice, and something like warm orange sauce. Long lasting finish. This was much darker than the last bottle we had of this. Maybe a storage issue at some point. Still, a great end to an amazing evening. A birthday dinner where the guests get the presents. Thks Murray!

This was a slow leaker. Amazingly it was fresh with years left. Truly beautiful and not a bit cloying which is my usual pan on Yquem. Guess I just have to wait 50 years!

Flashbacks to when I got the opportunity to try the 1919 yquem in a wine shop in DC 12 years ago. Most amazing wine I have ever had.

Orange brownish gold. Heavy in the glass. Looks old. Nose of apricot, orange peel and spicy honey. Very refined and concentrated in the mouth. Finish lasts minutes. Great memorable finishing wine.

Best bottle of 67 I've had. The depth and complexity are hard to describe. A finish that lasts longer than I can wait to have another sip.
