97 Points - Vinous:  The 1959 Yquem came directly from the property and is the best bottle I had up to that point. Apricot, marmalade and quince adorn the beautifully defined nose that is almost Barsac-like in quality. The palate is built around intense marmalade-tinged honeyed fruit and a razor-sharp acidity that effortlessly slices through it. This is imbued with wonderful tension - gorgeous crème brûlée, marmalade and quince towards the pixelated finish. (NM)  (11/2020)
