Tasting Notes

The extraordinary releases of Château d'Yquem are considered amongst the best, if not the best, sweet wines in the world. Based in the famous Sauternes region of Bordeaux, Yquem is located on the highest hill in Sauternes and enjoys the best growing conditions in the whole appellation. The 110-hectare vineyard is planted with 80% Sémillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Only fully botrytized fruit is selected by the 150 pickers employed and yields are so incredibly low that each vine produces only one glass of wine. Stylistically these wines are wonderfully complex, lusciously sweet, indulgently rich and able to age for decades and even centuries. 1997 was a particularly good year for Château d'Yquem and may be this estate's finest effort since the classic 1990. Exotic and pronounced on the nose, this stunning wine displays aromas of pineapple, toffee, peach, apricot, white ginger and marzipan. Full-bodied and unctuous, a textured and layered delivery of flavour reveals notes of stone fruit, spice, nuts and savoury notes set against a beautifully balanced backbone of acidity. Although now starting to open up and reveal potential, this classic release will happily age for a further 20 years and beyond.
