CHATEAU YQUEM 2005 - 1ER CRU CLASSE SUPERIEUR

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

“Elegant exuberance... Magnificent composition.” 20/20 Bettane + Desseauve
Yquem has masterfully perfected this fragile balance for 250 years to obtain perfect grapes thanks to a combination of factors that have never been achieved elsewhere. Situated on a small hill with over 110 hectares of productive vineyards, Yquem is exposed on all sides, south, west, east and even north, allowing one side to always be well exposed depending on the weather. In colder years, the southern exposure is perfect, in warmer years, west is best. It is both delicious and refreshing, intense and chiselled, with contrasts that blend in harmony. It has a deliciously pure sensation, with juicy and inviting flavours of green plum, ginger, heather, pineapple cream and Jonagold apple, that blend and glide through the long finish with dried citrus notes. Its immediacy is misleading, its potential is enormous!

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...
