Château d'Yquem 2006 (Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc)

TASTING NOTES:

  • 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.

Château d'Yquem 2006

Considered the greatest white wine in the world, Château d'Yquem, located on a small hill, enjoys a microclimate and an exceptional terroir. The vineyard, which has no fewer than 150 plots of various soils, pampers throughout the year: each vine receives an average of 50 treatments per year. The selection is shown to particularly rigorous Yquem: often said that a vine produces only a glass of wine. The harvest is carried out in at least four passes (seven in 1997!) To harvest the grapes at perfect maturity, suffering from rot noble.A note, the area also produces a dry white wine, Y d'Yquem, from grapes unreached botrytis cinerea.Ce wonderful wine unfolds aromas of peach, pineapple, coconut, nutmeg and cinnamon, supported by the nuances of toast, caramel and vanilla from new oak. In a rich and extraordinary concentration, wines Yquem have potential for extraordinary care. "Mozart Guitry said that after the silence that succeeded was even Mozart. After a sip of Yquem, the following moments are still Yquem."

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.

Needs to be drunk with the right food. The best company for Château d'Yquem is a good conversation.
Has a very cheerful colour. A Sauternes with a very good acidity.

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...

Château D'Yquem Blanc 2001
The best white wine in the world, probably the best vintage that still can be found, save practically eternal. What more could you ask for?
