Château d’Yquem is a Premier Cru Supérieur Classé property in Sauternes, Bordeaux, and is widely regarded as the greatest producer of sweet wine in the region, perhaps even the world. It is a blend of botrytised Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc that is painstakingly hand-harvested, berry by berry, and is matured for 42 months in new French oak. The 1998 is perhaps less intensely sweet, rich and powerful as other vintages, but it is superbly crafted and elegant, making itself wonderfully approachable in youth where others might still require further cellaring.
