A very warm and dry summer, and just enough rain in September led to a very sweet and smooth Château d'Yquem 375ml 1999. This vintage stands out with a unique and fabulous taste.

4/5

I tried it during a wine tasting.
This Sémillon is very pleasing to the eye. I liked the Château d'Yquem 50cl, although it tasted a bit rough.
We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good.

My boyfriend brought me this wine bottle.
A beautiful vivid colour. It was light but tasted like blackberries.
