Details
Château d'Yquem 1937
Sauternes, 1er grand cru classé
Two slightly raised corks. Two bottles with signs of seepage. Branded capsules and corks. Five clear glass bottles. One green glass bottle. Excellent appearance. Three slightly marked labels. Levels: top-shoulder

One of the great Sauternes vintages, on a par with the top pre-phylloxera years and 1929, but not as monumental as the 1921. The high acidity which resulted in many astringent reds was of great benefit to the sweet whites.

Tasting note: If well cellared, then certain still to be superb. Fairly deep colour, less so than the ’21 and ’29. Most recently; a fairly deep warm amber with green rim; very distinctive nose, fragrant, complex, harmonious yet with a refreshing. Piquant citrus scent; sweet, very rich, mouthfilling, soft, gentle caramel flavour, excellent ’37 acidity giving it a dry finish. Superb. Last tasted June 2003 *****
