Robert Parker :
1990: An extraordinary effort, Yquem's 1990 is a rich and fabulously superb, sweet wine. This wine also possesses lots of elegance and finesse. The wine's medium gold color is accompanied by an exceptionally sweet nose of honeyed tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. High quality, subtle toasty oak is well-integrated. The wine is massive on the palate, with layers of intensely ripe botrytis-tinged, exceptionally sweet fruit. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power and richness have created a wine of remarkable harmony and purity. Certainly it is one of the richest Yquems I have ever tasted, with 50-100 years of potential longevity. An awesome Yquem! Anticipated maturity: 2003-2050+.

Pre-arrivals : Millesima USA has decided to open the door to the cellars of its Bordeaux-based parent company in order to take advantage of the more than 2,500,000 bottles aging slowly aging in their cellars. Our parent company, Millesima SA is the 5th largest buyer of Bordeaux classified growths since 1983, and serves over 70,000 private customers. By opening up their cellars, our customers here in the U.S. will gain access to these resources. As Millesima SA buys its wines directly from each property, these bottles have spent their lives in only two cellars, those of the producing Châteaux and Millesima SA before arriving to the united states. Given that these wines will be traveling by boat from Bordeaux, delivery can take from 3 to 6 months. We sell pre-arrivals only in their original case by 6 or 12 bottle pack according to the estate. All large formats can be purchase by unit.

Manhattan wine merchant Millesima USA offers a large selection of fine and rare wines including the most sought-after French, Italian, and New World wines. We personally select each wine we sell for its quality and value and guarantee the highest quality standards for wine storage, shipment, and customer service.
