Château d'Yquem, 1er Grand Cru Classé, Sauternes, 1998

Tasting Note:

`A pale golden hue. A lovely minerally nose of almonds and custard creams. Very soft, plush and perfumed. Touch of chalk dust. The palate is unctuous with a lot of botrytis. Again, that custard creme note comes through mixed with peach, creme fraiche. Not quite as rich as the 1995 but the end is endless. Perhaps not as long-term as other vintages, but certainly a wine that is going to offer a lot of pleasure over the next quarter century.` 94-96/100 - Neal Martin, Wine Journal
