"Another impressive Yquem" 

Wine Region: Boredaux - France

Grape: 75% Sémillon, 22% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Muscadelle 

Tasting notes: A beautiful gold colored robe. Complex and layered nose with citrus, apricots, cardamon and marmalade aromas with hints of candied fruit, toast and botrytis. Elegance and finesse on the palate with aromas of white fruit and honey. Incredible, spellbinding length and smooth finish.

Expert ratings:

Robert Parker 96/100

"Tasted single blind against its peers. The Yquem 2008 is easy to spot in a blind line-up: it is (to quote Tina Turner) simply the best. It has a subtle, delicate but very pretty bouquet with fine definition and astounding minerality. The palate is beautifully poised, tense and tightly coiled on the entry and then it just explodes in the mouth with pure, unbridled, joyous botrytized fruit struck through with a silver thread of acidity. It displays exemplary tension and freshness, along with great persistency in the mouth. This is an outstanding Sauternes 2008 and another impressive Yquem." Robert Parker

Wine Spectator 94/100 

"Beautiful lemon cream chamomile and fried pineapple notes with a refreshing almost floral edge running along as well. Creamy coconut and green plum notes fill in on the finish which has admirable length. A restrained lighter style with lovely precision. Drink now through 2035. 10000 cases made." James Moleworth

About the Winery:

Châteay d'Yquem is often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world. After centuries of family ownership, Yquem was finally sold in acrimonious circumstances to Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy in 1999. However, its former owner and director Alexandre de Lur-Saluce remains in charge.

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 picked by the 150 highly skilled pickers and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine.

Yquem is fermented in oak barrels (100% new) and is left in barriques to mature for up to 36 months. Intensely opulent when young, Yquem develops an extraordinary complexity and exotic richness when fully mature, with the best vintages lasting for over 50 years. Château d'Yquem is classified as a 1er Cru Classé supérieur.
