A tale of two Yquem

June 5, 2018


We expected the 1997 Yquem to perform above the 1998… But as we say, there are no great old wines, only great bottles… So this time it was the Yquem 1998 that was singing!!  Big thanks to Jaco for popping this Yquem graciously from his cellar 🙂

1998 Château d’Yquem
It was very pale yellow colour… but nose was piecing of Ananas, lychee, white flowers, really penetrating nose… the tqste was similar flavours, but also very fresh and lively… a great Yquem that has still a long life ahead!! (95 points)

1997 Château d’Yquem
Colour is quite golden… nose of apricot, caramel, smoke, it is great but lacking a little bit finesse and acidity… The taste is a little bit too sweet and sugary for me… but still good Yquem! (91 points)
