Chateau d'Yquem
$199.99

Dessert, Fortified & Fruit Wine by Chateau d'Yquem from Sauternes and Barsac, France - Bordeaux. Lovely, brilliant, golden-yellow ...color. Concentrated nose of apricot compote, dried fruit, and figs with vanilla and floral (jasmine and acacia blossom) aromas. The bouquet opens up after swirling in the glass to reveal extremely fresh citrus zest overtones that emphasize the wine's subtle refinement. 2005 Yquem starts out deliciously suave and caressing on the palate, with perfect balance. The fresh acidity and elegance complement the wine's restrained power, giving it incredible class. There are strong flavors of gingerbread, orange nonette cakes and licorice followed by a gorgeous acid tang that underpins the wine's beautiful, long aftertaste on a par with the chateau's most illustrious vintages. The tremendously varied and complex flavors all seem to vibrate on the same wavelength, melting into a subtle whole. read more

Dessert, Fortified & Fruit Wine by Chateau d'Yquem from Sauternes and Barsac, France - Bordeaux. The history of Yquem (like its wi...ne) keeps a mystery even today. If the vineyard has been existing for a long time, the present castle is rather quite recent (the oldest parts date from the 15th century). In 1993, four hundred years old were celebrated at Chateau Yquem. It was on the 8th of December 1593 when Jacques de Sauvage acquired in tenure simple by an agreement of exchange of estates la maison appelee Yquem, a Crown's property at that time. In the genealogy of Lur Saluces, there are three branches to be considered: the Lur, the Saluces, the Sauvage. The archives of the Domain allow us to get back in the family's history until 990. The Lur originate from Franconie (Fruin de Lur lived in Limousin in 990, while the Saluces branch comes from the Marquisate of Saluzzo in the Piedmont). Under Louis XVI, in 1785 exactly, the domain of Yquem came into the Lur-Saluces family by the marriage of Fran oise Josephine de Sauvage, the Lady of Yquem, with Louis Amedee de Lur Saluces, colonel of Penthievre dragons (who was a godson of Louis XV and Lady Victoire de France). read more

Dessert, Fortified & Fruit Wine by Chateau d'Yquem from Sauternes and Barsac, France - Bordeaux. Yquem tells a unique story. It st...arts with the bouquet. Although not always very outgoing in young vintages, it is marked by fruit (apricot, mandarin, and occasionally tropical fruit) and oak (vanilla and toasty aromas). Older vintages, on the other hand, have an extraordinarily complex fragrance as soon as the bottle is opened, with hints of dried fruit (dried apricot, prune, stewed fruit, and marmalade), spice (cinnamon, saffron, and liquorice), and even flowers (lime blossom, etc.). The first impression of Chateau d'Yquem on the palate is always very silky, and often sumptuous. It then fills out, coating the palate. This fine wine has a strong, but never overbearing character, with great elegance and poise. It always maintains a balance between sugar and acidity (sweetness and freshness). A touch of bitterness can also contribute to the overall harmony. Chateau d'Yquem's aftertaste is legendary, and it tells another story, which lasts and lasts Blend: 75% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon read more

Dessert, Fortified & Fruit Wine by Chateau d'Yquem from Sauternes and Barsac, France - Bordeaux. This was a year of tremendous con...trasts. Spring was abnormally cool and wet, which meant that flowering was very spread out - a factor conducive to complexity at Yquem. Summer was magnificent! Cool weather in September retained the grapes' freshness, whereas summerlike conditions returned in October. The harvest took place under ideal conditions. This 2013 is very botrytised, with richness and candied fruit flavors. The wine's freshness and power are comparable to 2001 and the degree of botrytis is reminiscent of 2007. read more
