Reviews of Château D'Yquem 50cl 2008
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.
In general, neither hot nor cold.
Yquem 50cl 2011
Typical opacity of a Château d'Yquem. This sweet had a fun acidity on the palate.
