White - sweet- Sauternes - France
The rare and excellent 1944 from Ch.d'Yquem. Label illegible due to cellar humidity damage, vintage visible on the cork and the capsule; capsule good but with some corrosion; cork appears in excellent condition (no signs of seepage); level upper mid-shoulder; and a lovely amber colour with excellent clarity.
Michael Broadbent in his "Vintage Wine" says:
Amber gold, orange-tinged, vivid apple-green rim; lovely honeyed bouquet, lanolin, orange blossom repeated; very attractive flavour; good length, dry fragrant finish. 4 stars
I am selling some gems from my private cellar, built up over my lifetime, in order to buy wines I have yet to experience. All of my old wines were sourced from the cellars of other connoisseurs. Keep a look out for my other bottles!

Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.还没有收到货品。Let op. Sommige gedeeltes op deze pagina zijn automatisch vertaald.Chinese Customs rejected import of the bottle, stating that the purchaser did not do what was requested by Customs. I had contacted Catawiki and explained this. I was waiting for someone to tell me what the next step is. If you wish the wine to be shipped to China once again, there will be an additional cost. If you would rather that the wine was sold again, I can then refund the purchase price or, if the sale price is lower than originally paid, refund the lesser amount.

The description clearly stated the inverted ullage, so there was evidently a chance that there could be some oxidation, hence no reserve price in the sale. Whilst in my possession the bottle was stored cool and dark, however I cannot say if it was badly stored prior to my ownership. I have drunk Champagnes with similar ullages, some have been excellent while others have been less than good. In the final analysis no one can guarantee that the contents of an old bottle are in pristine condition. There is always a risk.
Toppie toppie! :)
