CHATEAU D'YQUEM 2001 - 1ER CRU CLASSE SUPERIEUR

0,75 L White Wine / France / Bordeaux wine / Sauternes AOC / 13,5 % vol

Rarely in the history of Yquem has such an impression of perfection been described!
When you discover this superb wine can there be any doubt that this is the flagship of sweet wines? With its majestic antique gold colour, it subtly plays on its aromas of passion fruit, apricot, citrus and fig that it contrasts with flowers and a hint of nutmeg. After aeration, these aromas become ever more present and dominate the bouquet, complemented by touches of vanilla and quince. Dense and mouthfilling, it opens on a well-rounded round palate, enveloping and rich but balanced. The lingering final reveals new roasted notes of fresh fruit and candied apricot. A real Yquem that combines strength and elegance, to open in five years time and could even be worth waiting a century for.

YQUEM (Château)

Yquem remains and will remain the largest and most famous sweet wine in the world. For a hundred years, this unique Premier Cru Classé Supérieur has stood out from other Bordeaux wines by its exemplary consistency, even during bad vintages and difficult periods. Under the direction of Pierre Lurton, already at the head of Cheval Blanc, the cru has been producing only great masterpieces for the past ten years, deserving more than ever of its status as a mythical wine. The particularity of Yquem comes from its unique terroir. Here, botrytis develops like nowhere else and offers absolutely marvellous Sauternes, with controlled sumptuousness and an incredible potential for flavour that puts it far ahead of all its neighbours. Yes, Yquem, is a myth in and of itself and yes, the prices are high. But Yquem is excellence in its purest form: no lover of sweet wines should refrain from tasting it at least once in his/her life...
