A wine to drink with the closest friends.
Its intense colour attracted me. I couldn't find any particular flavour.
A good sweet to finish the meal properly.

Acquired directly at the vineyard.
It had a deep colour at first sight. I felt it alive and fresh.

We paired the Château d'Yquem Imperial with a starter. A wine to celebrate with friends.
I especially liked the colour. Very good acidity of this Sauternes.

A sweet that paired extremely well with the food. Me and my clients from Sauternes tasted it together.
Deep colour at first sight. The flavour doesn't go out right away.
