Description

History

Château d’Yquem is a 113-hectare estate in the Sauternes region, which produces a unique sweet white wine obtaining the recognition of “Premier Cru Supérieur” in the 1855 Bordeaux Classification. The magical blend of Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes creates the Château d’Yquem, where the Sémillon offers aromas, body and sweetness and the Sauvignon contributes acidity. The grape harvest is done by hand in several steps and the vinification takes place only if the climatic conditions are optimal. In less favorable years, the grapes are used to produce a dry wine called Y di Yquem.

Grapes used

Semillon

Sauvignon Blanc

Production method

The must ferments in new oak barrels and the fermentation proceeds naturally until it reaches an alcohol content ranging between 12.5 and 14.5 degrees, based on the amount of sugar present in the must. In spring, the year following the harvest, the best lots are selected and blended. The wine is then left to mature for 20 months.

Alcohol content

14%

Tasting notes

The bouquet of Château d’Yquem is characterized by notes of ripe fruit and dried fruit and spices resulting from the aging in oak and in the bottle. The wine is sumptuous and full, with a perfect balance between sweetness and freshness and a simply legendary aftertaste.

Possible combinations

The ideal combination is with aged cheeses or complex sweets rich in flavour, otherwise as a great meditation wine.
