A very warm and dry summer, and just enough rain in September led to a very sweet and smooth Château d'Yquem 375ml 2014. This vintage stands out with a unique and fabulous taste.

4/5

2013 remains deeply marked by a tremendous contrast between spring and summer
Everything contrasts these two seasons: On the one hand, May and June are abnormally cool and damp with a spreading bloom, pledge of complexity in sauternais
On the other hand, July and August are so hot and dry that 2013 is nearing the records
The very favorable conditions of this truly solar summer leave us very high hopes for the vintage.
