The 1988 is a more backward-styled Yquem than the 1989, 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

The Colour was deep and gold with glimpse of shiny orange. The nose was floral and complex. Multiple aromas of butter, honey, nuts lifted by lemon zest. At first, the onctuous wine develop rich honey suckle and spice. Then the mid palate explode with powerful flavours of white flowers and creme brulee. The acidity is well integrated and balance perfectly with the sweetness. The length is divine and goes on and on... Very much in its youth, this example of Chateau d'Yquem prove to be near perfection and should evolve beautifully over the next 30 to 40 years. QC http://www.questionofwine.blogspot.com

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. A Sauternes Blend wine from Bordeaux in France. 1988 Chateau dYquem 375ml
