The 1988 is a backward-styled Yquem built along the lines of the extraordinary 1975. With a honeyed smoky orange/coconut/pineapple-scented nose this powerful wine possesses full body layers of highly concentrated extracted flavors considerable botrytis and a sensational finish. Last tasted 12/97 Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Big and showy rich and ripe featuring sweet mango pineapple and lime character. Full in body with a long finish that reins in honey dried apricot and toasted vanilla flavors. Drink or hold until at least 1998. 6 500 cases made. Wine Spectator.
