Very dark tawny - a sunny vintage. Quite different. Lots of botrytis. Big and smudgy and less precise than the 1996. Very sweet but without the precision of 1996. I think ideally one would wait before serving this. Long and chewy and caramel with some chew. Big and round and dried-fruit notes but you need to wait.

Beautiful deep yellow, almost shading to amber colour; lovely open nose with honey and almonds; unctous and long on the palate with a long and lingrring sweetnes but not cloying. A superb Yquem!
Garret's notes: beautiful light amber robe, sweetness, caramel and molasses on the nose; unctuous; decadent like Nero playing the fiddle; lovely acidity; the finish is very prolonged and delicate.
