Estate Notes

Château d'Yquem 1976 is drinking beautifully right now. We have one bottle for sale.

Yquem is without doubt, one of the world's finest wine producers, 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."

There is no rush to drink Yquem, but when you can resist the temptation no more we would recommend that you serve it alongside a foie gras or oyster starter, or with a fine blue cheese such as Roquefort (which has its own a.o.c.!). Several top international chefs have also partnered Yquem with sole and lobster dishes.

Reviews

"Golden. In all aspects it was a fantastic wine with incredibly well-composed and intense noble rot, refined and deep aroma of melon and heather honey, lot of nuances, enormous concentration and depth on the palate, perfect balance and aftertaste, which would not disappear. A monument of a wine! Will it last for 30 years more? Tasted 2005." Izak Litwar, greatbordeauxwines.com
