Wow 98 is good. Mesmerizing aromatics of saffron, allspice and honeycomb with a silky liquid cashmere texture, dazzling length and racy acids. The whole package. As they say, liquid gold, and all that was needed for dessert. Great to be able to enjoy more than just a glass. 👑

Big year. Not perfect but close, nothing new to be said about these wines, just happy to enjoy it once in a while.

Big year in Yquem perfect botrytis, slightly maderized, everything this wine and vintage can and should produce.

Tasted blind. Dark gold, heavy like oil in the glass. Piercing nose full of energy. Notes of apricot, tan spice, orange, some grilled pineapple, and a little caramel. Rich and heavy in the mouth. Powerful. Guessed 83 Climens.

Needed the perfect Yquem for seared fois gras, with warm orange compote as accompaniment. ‘97 Yquem Leander orange/tangerine more than apricot. Worked perfectly. Very steady and balance. Long golden length. Perfect.
