    Among the greatest Bordeaux white wines of 2018

    A dry white wine by the world-famous Premier Cru Classe Superieur of Sauternes Chateau d’Yquem, Y is also one of the greatest dry white wines of Bordeaux. Classified under the Bordeaux Blancs Secs appellation, this blend of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon is aged on its lees with regular stirring and in barrels, of which 20% are new and 80% are of one previous Yquem wine.

    Another early vintage, following the historically early 2017, the Y by Chateau d'Yquem 2018 is the product of superb weather conditions, with one unfortunate episode of violent storms and hail that significantly impacted yields. In fact, only 5000 bottles of Y by Château d’Yquem 2018 will be released. Fortunately, however, this had no impact on the quality. The Chateau d'Yquem Y 2018 shows off superb quality, intoxicating the nose with delicate notes of white flowers and generous aromas of ripe white peaches... and what length on the palate! Without a doubt, among the best dry white wines of Bordeaux produced in 2018!

    The Chateau d'Yquem Y 2018 seems to be on the same level as the precocious and very beautiful white vintages of 2013 and 2017, but quantities for 2018 will be limited!
