You will like to know that…

For over 400 years, Château d'Yquem has been providing the world with the fruit of its passion in the form of unmatchable wines. Château d'Yquem is one of the most prestigious wineries in its region. In the Sauternes region of Bordeaux, France, this winery is the only one to have been awarded the designation of Premier Cru Supérieur. The wine produced here is the best in the region, the quality of which only wines can only aspire to.

The winery has released a vintage of its world-famous Château d'Yquem nearly every year, releasing 65,000 bottles on average per harvest. There have been 10 years since 1900 in which the grapes were deemed not of a high enough quality to bear the name Château d'Yquem. The Château d'Yquem 1995 is an exceptionally great vintage of this wine. The Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were handpicked at the height of maturity and processed into a beautifully unique golden wine.

One of the secrets of this winery is its susceptibility to noble rot, a natural fungus that grows on mature wine grapes and which makes the resulting wine finer and more concentrated. The wines from this winery can be left to age for decades or even centuries. The is one of the most coveted wine brands in the world for good reason. Do not pass up your chance to buy a bottle of your own.

4/5

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...
