A very warm and dry summer, and just enough rain in September led to a very sweet and smooth Château d'Yquem 375ml 1959. This vintage stands out with a unique and fabulous taste.

Compré el Château d'Yquem Blanc en la web de la bodega pero el precio no es más barato que en otros sitios.
Bonito y profundo color. Los aromás del Château d'Yquem Blanc estaban bien equilibrados.

My friends from Château d'Yquem brought it to me.
It had an intense colour. A smoky touch remained in my mouth.

Schimmernder Farbton. Hinterlässt ein leicht süßliches Aroma am Gaumen.

4/5

Discovering Chateau d'Yquem stats with the bouquet. Although not always very outgoing in young vintages, it is marked by fruit (apricot, mandarin, and occasionally tropical fruit) and oak (vanila and toasty aromas). Older vintages, on the other hand, have extraordinarily complex fragrance as soon as the bottle is opened. The bouquet is amazingly suble, with hints of dried fruit (dried apricot, prune, stewed fruit, and marmalade), spice (cinnamom, saffron, and liquorice), and even flowers (linden blossom, etc).
The first impression of Chateau d'Yquem on the palate is always very silky, and often sumptuous. It then fills out, "coating the palate". This fine wine has a strong, but never overbearing character, with great elegance and poise. It always mantains a balance between sugar and acidity (sweetness and freshness). A touch of bitterness can also contribute to the overall harmony. Chateau d'Yquem aftertaste is legendary, and it tells another story, which lasts and lasts...

Chateau D'Yquem Sauternes Premier Grand Cru 2002

4/5

In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Château d'Yquem was the only Sauternes given this rating, indicating its perceived superiority and higher prices over all other wines of its type. Yquem's success stems largely from the site's susceptibility to attack by "noble rot" (Botrytis cinerea).
