Description · Château d'Yquem

Château D'Yquem 2008 (Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc)

A straw-colored gold to a dark amber, depending on age. Marked fruit, apricot, tangerine, tropical fruit occasionally, oak, vanilla and toasted aromas. Honey, hazelnuts and quince. Very complex. Rich and creamy, feel nuts, dried apricot, plum jam, spices, cinnamon, saffron and liquorice, flowers sometimes. Generally a combination of fruit and acidity with notes of tangerine jam. Sometimes a bitter touch that contributes to harmony. Long and mythical endless.

Pairing: The spectacular nature of this wine makes it perfect to take alone, but has a high potential as it allows us to be used with food pairings and contrasts with fat mouthfeel. Ideal with foie, jams and desserts finest pastries.
