Tasting Notes and Scores

Wine Advocate

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 29/04/2005 Space limitations preclude including tasting notes. The 1998 Yquem is a great success. Made in an elegant style, it is not a blockbuster such as 1990, 1989 and 1988. It is well delineated, with wonderfully sweet aromas of crème brulee, pineapples, apricots, and white flowers. Medium to full bodied, it is not as sweet as the biggest/richest Yquem vintages, but it is gorgeously pure, precise, and strikingly complex. Already approachable, it should evolve for 30-50 years… without a doubt. (95)
