Bordeaux Book, 3rd Edition January, 1998 This is an excellent, even outstanding Yquem, but I must admit to being less impressed with it than others who have ecstatically called it one of the greatest Yquems produced. It is rich and honeyed, with a spicy, oaky, tropical fruit aroma, rich butterscotch, toasted fruit, and caramel flavors, and an astringent, dry, slightly coarse finish that, for me, keeps it from getting higher marks. Anticipated maturity: Now-2025. Last tasted, 11/82.
