CHATEAU D'YQUEM 1996 - 1ER CRU CLASSE SUPERIEUR

0,75 L White Wine / France / Bordeaux / Sauternes AOC / 14 % vol

A classic standard that perfectly reflects the Yquem balance.
This Yquem vintage is the exemplary illustration of this great Château. It's a model wine where everything is just as it should be, everything is calm and yet it lingers. Rich, full-bodied, balanced - it is highly flattering and seductive, despite it having an ageing potential that appears to be endless. This wine has an immense future, especially as it will be a textbook example for the domaine - a vintage of reference, a case study, a model of balance, elegance and refinement. A "benchmark" wine, if you will.

CHÂTEAU D'YQUEM

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...
