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.

Château d'Yquem 1959

Speaking of sweet wines is to speak this wine. No one can disassociate themselves from ever drinking, or even taste a Yquem. It is in the small appelation of Sauternes that inhabits the most famous sweet wine in the world.

In Sauternes, ground white, the glorious sweet white wines, where the grapes are attacked by the Botrytis cinerea fungus, there is the Château D'Yquem, to imagine, is entitled to a special classification, above all others, the Premier Cru supérieur.
This classification, unanimously and demonstrates the quality extreme withdrawal of its grapes.

Its story is incredibly long and complex, dating back to the Middle Ages, when it was owned by the King of England, for example, or when during the 1st World War when he served in field hospital. As much has this property, but one thing always stayed, the reputation of a great wine, by which it committed follies for which it paid small and large fortunes. In short, there is no other equal producer worldwide.

Drink a drink Château d'Yquem is a story of an exemplary product.

The Château has 113ha of vineyard, located on top of a rise, a privilege only of Yquem, which occur frequently the morning fog and the heat in the afternoon. It is this precious conjunction of climates that allows the development of the fungus Botrytis which attacks grape Semillon, very prone to this "infection", and becomes porous, resulting in the loss of water in grape pulp, concentrating all his sugar.

During the harvest come to pass 13 times through the vineyards to remove, berry to berry, those who are infected and in great condition to be able to give rise to the liquid gold that is a wine of Sauternes.

Superior!
Noble, Yquem is the unique Premier Cru Supérieur of Bordeaux.
The robe is gold colour, this wine is silky. The bouquet is saffron. On the palate, it is sweety. Yquem is more than "superior".

It is distinguished, and rich.
Bordeaux could not exist without Yquem.
2006 had an excellent crop.
Climate is good and soils are different and rich.

Our bottles come directly from Château d'Yquem



We had the great chance to taste this superbe wine en primeur at the château at the end of April. And we discovered an Yquem 2003 showing an induspitable superiority on all of the botrytised sweet white wines... even though 2003 is incredible for all of the Sauternes appellation.
Yquem is the perfect balance between all the elements that make a wine THE wine for eternity.Drink or keep: EternalDelicious with: Foie gras

Chateau D'Yquem Sauternes Premier Grand Cru 2002
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...
