1981 Château d'Yquem, 1er Grand Cru Classé Sauternes

“The dark horse of the Yquem tasting at CECWINE in November 2004. A slight deeper colour compared to the 79 and 80. Rich honey and peach with superb definition and focus. The palate has great balance and verve with exquisite freshness and joie-de-vivre. Apricot and orange. There is a lot of finesse and grace here. It's harmony and texture, rather than concentration that elevates it above the others.”
94-96 points, Neal Martin, erobertparker.com
