A tad more elegant than the '88. Not as showy, but more poise and articulation.

Like the woman of my dreams: round, generous, voluptuous, complex, beautiful and sexy as hell. It's Anita Ekberg in la Dolce Vita, it's Christina Hendricks in mad men. Well you got it. Acidity gives this monster of a wine a delicate touch, an immortal length that is just phenomenal! I have said several times that Yquem is in my opinion, the best wine estate of the planet. I rest my case with this bottle. It's is truly my dream woman

I often say that @mYquem is not a wine, it's an experience. This beautiful 86 isn't making me lie. The concentration here is to the roof and it needs a decade more to be the jewel it should be. A perfect wine

The 3-liter was markedly less developed than the 750s. Simply amazing!
