Wine Advocate-Parker :
Generally speaking, 1967 was not a great vintage for the dry reds of Bordeaux. After a meh start to the Yquem harvest in early October, a spell of rain ensued, followed by warm dry temperatures in mid-October that ignited an explosion of botrytis. The rest is history: 1967 was a legendary year for Yquem. And this was indeed a very good bottle, tasted at the Chateau in spring 2019.
