DEMI BOTTLE CHATEAU D'YQUEM 2007 - 1ER CRU CLASSE SUPERIEUR

White Wine / France / Bordeaux / Sauternes AOC / 14 % vol

"An exceptional wine from an exceptional vintage from Yquem. This wine should have a place among the immortals of this vintage due to its exceptional balance between rich liquor, alcohol and acidity." - RVF -
A vintage that should have been relegated to oblivion by the effects of the climate: very variable, a cool summer, 100 mm of rain in August, bursting berries... except for a miraculous turnaround in the weather, favouring botrytis that would turn a handicap into a decisive advantage, thanks to the variety and complexity of the selection. A great vintage! Château d'Yquem delivers powerful flavours of tropical fruit - dried mango and pineapple - highlighted by acacia honey, toasted almonds and notes of smoke and lime. On the palate it seems to be one of those vintages that appears to be drier than it truly is, in large part thanks to its fresh and elegant backbone and mineral flavours, all ending in a tasty finish with a satiny texture. Hard to resist now, this is one of those vintages that can be predicted to age in the cellar not only for decades, but for generations...

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...
