Grapes: 80% sémillon, 20% sauvignon

Aging: French Oak Barrels

Tasting Notes: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 95 Points: “Pale gold colored, the 1998 d'Yquem features a flamboyant, rock-star nose of allspice, candied ginger, honeycomb and crème brûlée with a core of preserved lemons, mandarin peel and musk perfume plus a waft of potpourri. Beautifully balanced in the mouth, with seamless freshness lifting the decadent sweetness (134.4 grams per liter of residual sugar), it culminates with fantastically persistent layers of exotic spices. Drink 2018-2050.” (LPB) May 2018
