Estate Notes

Yquem is, without doubt, one of the world's finest wines, of whom Robert Parker comments: "There is no other wine in the world like it, and there is no other luxury wine that can possibly justify its price as much as Yquem. The remarkable amount of painstaking labor necessary to produce the nectar known as Yquem is almost impossible to comprehend."

Reviews

"Lovely pale rose-tawny colour. Rich and round with a hint of rose petals and almonds on the nose. Wonderful richness with race and delicacy too. Deep undertow of substance and on the finish a note of orange peel. Very complete testament to the longevity of great Sauternes. Very vibrant still." Jancis Robinson MW
