Chateau d'Yquem - Y - Bordeaux

€142.00

Vintage
Size

The wine offers an infinitely complex expression, between grapefruit and exotic fruits, pear, white peach and basil, all in freshness. It is not uncommon for it to evoke a noble Riesling of Alsace, even a great Burgundy. It presents a remarkable vivacity and tension, while revealing a creamy texture and a beautiful length in the mouth.

Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

Often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world, Château d’Yquem has a reputation that has followed it from the middle ages to today. Back then, d’Yquem was owned by the King of England and has since had an interesting history, including being used as a military hospital in both World Wars. In 1996 d’Yquem was bought by LVMH (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton) from Alexandre de Lur Saluces after centuries of family ownership.

Château d’Yquem has 113 hectares of vines planted with 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc situated at the highest point in Sauternes which has a unique microclimate. This is hugely important as it allows for winds from the east to move through the vineyard which is crucial to remove unwanted moisture during the growing season as the noble rot sets in. Only fully botrytized fruit is picked by 150 very highly skilled vineyard workers and yields are so low that each vine only produces one glass of wine.

In the 1855 classification of Bordeaux, Château d’Yquem was lauded not only to be the greatest wine of Sauternes, but of the entire Bordeaux region with its golden wines declared almost immortal.
