Apricot, roses, honey, sunflowers, oolong tea, fennel pollen, hay, saffron, rainwater. Beautiful wine. Could smell this all day.

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. 👑

Really old honeycomb, fresh lemon zest. Pineapple ghosts. Haunting. Buy this.

Vintage 1998 / apricot, excellent balance, lively / a treat to taste, we tried it next to crème brulee (very good) and foie gras (absolute perfection)

A “thank you” from Steve of Arnyca after dinner. Holy smokes, this was like drinking liquid honey. So much texture and weight. Honeyed almond, dried apricot, and molasses. My first D’Yquem. Hope to find an ‘88 for my 30th later this year.
