Château d’Yquem

What year is considered drinkable right now without "wasting it"

wanted to pick up a half bottle for a celebration and not knowing much about the wine other than older is better i could use some advice

and k and l they had a 95 and 98 half bottle for sale and was wondering if either of those would be good and is it really worth the extra 70 bucks for 3 more years of aging?

Are there certain years other than the "premium years" that i have seen on line as listed special best growth years

are there certain years to avoid? I was under the impression their quality control was very good and if it wasnt a certain level of quality it just didnt make the cut so not sure if there is a bad year

Is there something else that is in the same price range that i should consider to be equally as good ?
