4 /5

Acompaña bien a cualquier carne en general. Lo hemos bebido con mi pareja en esta ocasión.
Color muy atractivo. Un Château d'Yquem Blanc no suele ser ligero.

Château d'Yquem Blanc 1981

4 /5

It had a very deep colour. Chocolate and toffee flavour.
I had it with fish, but I didn't like the fish, and therefore the wine didn't taste right.
It was a birthday present for my friend.

I took it with an octopus and liked it. Nice chat with friends.
Deep colour at first sight. A little rough, it may need more time in bottle.
