Description

Deemed the world’s greatest white wine, the Château d’Yquem is located on a small hill and benefits from a micro-climate and exceptional soil. The vineyard encompasses no less than 150 plots of different soil, and is pampered throughout the year, with each individual vine undergoing an average of 50 different annual treatments. The selection process in Yquem is particularly stringent, with a local saying holding that a single vine makes a single glass of wine. Harvesting is carried out a minimum of four different times (seven in 1997!) in order to ensure the grapes harvested have reached perfect maturity and have been affected by noble rot. Please note, the estate also produces a dry white called Y d’Yquem from grapes that are free from noble rot. This marvellous wine unfurls aromas of peach, pineapple, coconut, nutmeg and cinnamon underpinned by nuances of toast, caramel and vanilla from the new oak. Boasting extraordinary richness and concentration, Yquem wines have incredible ageing potential. “Guitry once said that the silence that follows Mozart is still Mozart. I say that the moments that follow a sip of Yquem are still Yquem.”
