Chateau d'Yquem

Throughout the centuries, the property of Chateau d'Yquem has passed from the King of England to French nobility, down several generations as a most precious inheritance. The Lur Saluces family built the reputation of the king of sweet wines over the course of 400 years, utilizing the famous fungus, Botrytis cinerea, into a bottle of gold. While the luxury group LVMH has owned Chateau d'Yquem since 1999, it is the very discreet but no less renowned Pierre Lurton who is in charge of this exceptional Premier Cru Sauternes. The land is planted with 75% Semillon, which lends a structure and body to the final blend, and 25% Sauvignon Blanc, which contributes signature aromas for a more elegant finish. Grapes are picked only after they have reached 20 degrees potential alcohol (or 360 grams of sugar/L), and while the team waits, they run the risk of losing crops to the frosty conditions of late autumn. The harvest occurs only in vintages deemed worthy of the Chateau d’Yquem name, and is conducted in 5-6, even sometimes more than 10 passes.

The bouquet of Chateau d'Yquem is marked by a sublime melange of fruits (apricot, orange, prune), oak (vanilla, toast) and spice (cinnamon, saffron, liquorice). Ageing it for multiple decades brings forth flavors of caramel, burnt toast and creme brulee. Each bottle achieves what is considered a perfect harmony between sweetness and freshness. And that harmony lingers long on the palate, too much to say about its history and conception to disappear any time soon.
