Château d’Yquem

chateau d'yquem

Château d’Yquem is the world’s most famous sweet wine and arguably the finest. It is renowned for its incredible complexity, richness and exotic flavours, and terrific aging potential of 50+ years in great vintages.

Yquem is situated in the left bank Bordeaux appellation of Sauternes. Here, the close proximity of the Gironde provides the misty conditions in which noble rot (botrytis cinerea) can thrive and cause the grapes to shrivel and concentrate sweetness naturally. Yquem is sited on the highest hill in Sauternes, which affords the best growing conditions, and highly skilled workers select its incredibly low yields.

"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." Robert Parker
