Château d'Yquem 1994

Excessive rain at the beginning of the harvest was fatal to the grapes produced on the sandy plots while two weeks of intense work allowed the picking of very concentrated grapes on the clay plots
A vintage to appreciate the power and finesse of "clays" Yquem
Winter Temperature very above normal, especially in the minimum, allowing a departure of early vegetation
Rainfall almost normal but irregular
Spring Fairly rainy with normal temperatures
We are very close to the frost on April 16 (-0.1 º C)

First flower on May 27th
Summer Minimum and maximum temperatures well above average, low rainfall
As of July 31, you can taste grapes.

The Château d'Yquem is one of the great wines of Bordeaux. Is the only Sauternes Premier Cru ranked higher. It is considered the best dessert wine ever. The castle is listed as a historic monument since 2003. Today the farm is run by swindler Bernard Arnault: Pierre Lurton. It is for the latter to ensure the producer of liquor most prestigious in the world.

Château D'Yquem Blanc 1994

It pairs good with a strong flavoured fish. It was part of a Corporate gift.
Typical opacity of a Château d'Yquem. Passes easily across the palate, smooth and very nice.

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...
