Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 1976 Yquem continues to go from strength to strength. Who can ignore the awesome bouquet of spices, honeyed fruit, pineapples, bananas, coconuts, and overripe melons? This full-bodied, viscous, luscious wine has been absolutely delicious since bottling, given its relatively low acidity and precocious personality. It is one of the few true great vintages of Yquem that can actually be drunk with tremendous pleasure at such a young age. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025.
Wine Spectator
This is silky and beautifully creamy in the mouth. Medium-bodied, there's nothing heavy or big here, just a sense of harmony. So ethereal, it's the sort of wine one could drink almost every night. Drink now through 2030.

Additional Information

Sub-Region :

In the Graves region of Bordeaux lays the small wine commune of Sauternes. Here Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle are allowed to succumb to Botrytis cinerea, the "noble rot" that causes grapes to become partially raisined. The results are concentrated, complex, intense wines that can age for decades. They are often deeply golden and richly sweet, consumed with or in place of desserts and pairing beautifully with foie gras. Chateau d’Yquem is the most famous producer, along with Raymond-Lafon and Rieussec.

Region :
Though French wines are the highest valued wines in the world, esteemed wines from Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne were only enjoyed locally until 150 years ago when transportation improvements made them widely available. French wine production is governed by a strict quality-control system, which regulates the grapes used in each region and classifies wineries according to an elaborate cru hierarchy. Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Syrah and Sauvignon Blanc are just a few of the important grape varietals with roots in French soil. View all our items from France
