WA 98 "The 1928 Château d'Yquem was generously opened at a dinner in the Far East, this bottle purchased ex-château as indicated by the back label. Deep amber in color, the bouquet has amazing precision and intensity, a smorgasbord of scents such as mandarin, dried fig, nougat and a touch of adhesive (a common trait in old Sauternes and one that I quite enjoy). The palate is beautifully balanced with a killer line of acidity, layers of candied orange peel, mandarin, orange rind and botrytis. Whilst it does not contain the sheer power and flamboyance of the sensational 1929 d'Yquem, it does offer stunning persistence in the mouth. After 88 years, this Sauternes shows absolutely no sign of diminishing and it is bound to reach its century with style. Just fabulous. Tasted November 2016. (NM)" (02/2017)
