    (Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes) A great Sauternes vintage I think. Another rich and deeply coloured wine, and there is no less impact on the nose, which shows a great, intense, concentrated pile of sweet fruit. On the palate, plenty of flesh, plenty of texture, this is a wine absolutely loaded with character but also showing great freshness and style. There is fabulous depth here, and this wine although divine in its composition now, another fine balance of rich sweetness and acidity, it has a huge amount of potential for the future. Truly remarkable. I find this much more impressive than my previous tasting in November 2004.

    (Yquem) We finished with a 1988 Yquem, whose apricots, honey, crème brulee, nutty and waxy qualities were all as they should be, as always

    (Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes) Dry summer, harvest from September 25th. Good botrytis. Six tries. A rich golden wine. Good character on the nose. Quince and toasty lemon curd botrytis. Dense, complex, although also marred by a little volatile acidity. A rich, oily, massive palate. A spicy grip with some tannin apparent, and a silky texture. This is a wine still on the way up, with plenty to offer yet, but you have to hope the VA doesn't become a real problem. Needs 5-10 years.
