HALF BOTTLE - CHATEAU D'YQUEM 2013 - 1ER CRU CLASSE SUPERIEUR

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

Full of character, it is another great Yquem!!
A golden yellow colour of rare clarity, this wine announces itself with a bouquet that is as expressive as it is complex: in the glass we can sense varied fruits - roasted pineapple, orange, apricot, candied melon, fresh grapes - and honeyed aromas highlighted by vanilla and the sweet spices (cinnamon) of the barrel. After an intense and alert start on the palate with the orange zest and grapefruit, the wine stands out for its rich and enveloping material, where sweetness vies with aromatic freshness. The long finish toned by a lively edge leaves an impression of elegance. The quintessential expression of botrytis participates, without ostentation, in the paradoxical delicacy of this powerful and mesmerizing wine... A Yquem full of character!

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...
