Description of Château d'Yquem 2006

Château d'Yquem 2006 (Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc)


  • View: bright golden colour.
  • Nose: The nose is still shy but they are notes of peach, apricot and coconut. Creamy on the nose.
  • Mouth: The attack is round, full volume, with a long and delightful progression.

Very good structure, the wine has power and range. The 2006 vintage was not as easy to get but a very strict selection in the vineyard and the winery allowed us to make the best use of the land of Yquem.

4 /5

Auf der einen Seite adelig und stolz, wenden diese Adjektive bei Yquem seit 1855 einen Pleonasmus an, wobei es natürlich erscheint, dass Yquem ist, war und der einzige Premier Cru Superieur von Bordeaux bleiben wird.
Golden in seiner Farbe und seidig in seiner Textur. Das Bukett ist von Safran und sein Gaumen zuckersüss, Yquem hat den "supérieur" überstiegen.

Er ist unvergleichlich, unverkennbar, vorzüglich und übersinnlich. Adlig in der Farbe und im Stich, ist er der Wein unter den Weinen. Bordeaux wäre nicht Bordeaux ohne Yquem.
2006 zeigte eine passionierte Weinlese. Die ausgangslose Taktik war determiniert um die richtige Traube im richtigen Moment und am richtigen Ort zu lesen, und dies ohne Zeitverlust in den Parzellen ohne Hoffnung.

2006 zeigt das Interesse verschiedene Terroirs zu besitzen und die Wichtigkeit der perfekten Kenntnisse. Um eine optimale Gutheissung des Bodens und der Weingewinnung nach Art des Klimas zu wandeln.

4 /5

Supérieur! A la fois noble et altier, cet adjectif appliqué à Yquem depuis 1855 est un pléonasme tant il paraît évident qu'Yquem est, a été, et restera l'unique Premier Cru Supérieur de Bordeaux. Pléonasme aussi lorsque l'on se trouve face à ce colosse de liqueur, monstre d'ampleur, dont la confection relève plus de l'art que de la production. D'or par sa couleur, de soie par sa texture, de safran par son bouquet et de sucres par ses saveurs, Yquem a dépassé le "supérieur".

Il est incomparable, distingué, éminent et transcendant. Noble de robe et d'épée, il est Vin parmi les vins. Bordeaux ne serait pas Bordeaux sans Yquem.
Le 2006 a offert des vendanges passionnantes. La tactique déployée a été déterminante pour récolter le bon raisin
au bon moment et au bon endroit et ce sans perte de temps dans les parcelles sans espoir.

2006 illustre l'intérêt de disposer de terroirs variés et l'importance de leur parfaite connaissance pour valoriser l'optimum sols et cépages en fonction d'un climat donné.

4 /5

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

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


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).
