Tasting Notes d'Yquem 1982

92

The 1982 vintage, seriously maligned because of the rains that plagued the harvest in Sauternes, was actually an outstanding vintage for both d'Yquem and its nearby neighbor, Chateau Suduiraut, who brought in much of their crops before the rains did any damage. D'Yquem then waited until the harvest dried out, bringing in their last grapes on November 7th. The 1982 is a very forward style of d'Yquem, plump, succulent, with honeyed pineapple, peach, and apricot flavors, exhibiting some, but not a great deal of botrytis. In the mouth, it is massive, thick, and almost as impressive as the 1983, but one does not sense the same degree of length or potential complexity. Nevertheless, this is still a great d'Yquem that has been somewhat overlooked. Anticipated maturity: 1997-2020. Last tasted, 3/92.

Tasted at the Academie du Vin dinner in Bordeaux, along with Suduiraut, Yquem was one of the few successful Sauternes. It has a lovely, vivacious bouquet of mandarin, kiwi fruit, dried honey and mango. The palate is well balanced with impressive botrytis considering the vintage, although there is a sense of linearity and conservatism towards the finish. Tasted April 2012.
