CHATEAU D'YQUEM 2010 - 1ER CRU CLASSE SUPERIEUR

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

"The palate is truly intense... ending with a crazy persistence that lasts a full three minutes." - Robert Parker -
At Yquem, more than anywhere else, the precision of the harvests makes the wine great. It took juggling the weather, having a sufficiently large vineyard in order to make the lacy wine, and a willingness to take risks. Thanks to this, Sandrine Garbay, the maison’s winemaker, could produce a wine of great class, undoubtedly one of the most successful of the decade. To such a subtle and complex bouquet - yellow fruits, candied orange, lemon peel, brioche, light vanilla - is added a palate of extreme elegance and almost perfect balance. It starts off soft and full, evolving in a silky and delicate manner, offering a fine touch and, signature of the vintage, remarkable freshness that gives the ensemble an airy side and infinite length. A star dancer!

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...
