Château d'Yquem 1988

Sauternes, 1er Grand Cru Classé

u. bn, label damp soiled

The harvest finished on 25 November, with fantastic weather and no rain. In 2019, rich, tarry and treacly on the nose, with orange zest notes. On the palate, thick sweetness balanced by fresh acidity giving life and vigour. Very impressive and a dream with my birthday cake, a classic Norwegian bløtkake, with all its creamy, Amontillado-infused sponge, walnuts and marzipan. Serena Sutcliffe, MW
