Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted almost exactly a year after my previous encounter, this 1947 Château d'Yquem replicated the performance back then. It revealed that burnished amber color, then the glorious, intense and rich bouquet with dried honey, quince and mandarin, that hint of red fruit in the background tracing the birth year back to this hot postwar summer. The palate unctuous, almost heavy in the mouth, the acidity retaining sufficient freshness and poise with a powerful, quite spicy finish that feels extraordinarily long in the mouth. To repeat my earlier sentiment, whilst the 1947 is not up there with the greatest Yquem such as the 1929, 1945 or 2001, it occupies the tier below...and that's good enough for me. Tasted October 2016.
