Chateau d'Yquem 2014

Bordeaux - Sauternes - White Chateau d'Yquem Chateau d'Yquem 2014 1082/14
  • Parker : 96-98
  • J. Robinson : 18

2014 premier cru supérieur from Sauternes

The famous Chateau d'Yquem is located on the Sauternes terroir and stretches over a 113 hectares vineyard that grows on an incredible soil variety, resulting in a complex wine. 

"The 2014 Château d'Yquem has a captivating bouquet... It entrances with its pure, wild honey notes mixed with almond and white chocolate scents, bestowed with beguiling delineation and focus. The palate is very poised with the acidity nigh on perfect. There is undeniably great depth here, perhaps less conspicuous than other vintages because of that silver thread of acidity: notes of lemon sherbet, orange zest, shaved ginger and again, a few ‘flakes’ of white chocolate. It is extremely long with tenderness rather than power on the finish."

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Château Yquem 2014 was picked over 9 weeks this year, with one-quarter of the grapes picked prior to 15 September. It delivers 134 grams per liter residual sugar and 7.3 grams per liter tartaric acid, with a pH 3.60. It has a captivating bouquet (I know...I know...what else were you expecting) But it entrances with its pure, wild honey notes mixed with almond and white chocolate scents, bestowed with beguiling delineation and focus. The palate is very poised with the acidity nigh on perfect. Occasionally an Yquem only reveals its components parts at this early juncture, necessitates conjecture. However the 2014 has a sense of harmony and completeness already, as if the élevage is merely there to usher it on to its finished state. There is undeniably great depth here, perhaps less conspicuous than other vintages because of that silver thread of acidity: notes of lemon sherbet, orange zest, shaved ginger and again, a few flakes' of white chocolate. It is extremely long with tenderness rather than power on the finish. It's not quite up there in the rarefied heights of say, the 2001 or 2009, but it is what we call in the trade, the business.
