CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1988
Château d'Yquem 1988
Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé
u. 1vts, 1ts, 6 levels bn or into the neck, bin-soiled and damp-stained labels, bin-soiled capsules, 3 of which wine-stained, otherwise excellent color and clarity

The harvest finished on 25 November, with fantastic weather and no rain. An almost Madeira-like bouquet with a whiff of Sercial. Pure zests of oranges and lemons as well as bread and butter pudding with cloves. Sweet candied mandarin oranges and ginger. So vivacious at the end. Classic, multi-dimensional Yquem and fabulous with egg custard tarts (dan tat!). In 2014, superb orange richness and power. In 2015, a nutty, almond nose and rich oranges on the palate. Totally exciting. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
