Château D'Yquem


Cold, dry weather in May then took an about turn, becoming warm and wet. The summer of 1911 was very hot, with tropical temperatures in autumn that had a negative effect on the vines and saw damage from grape worms. Showers in September and October were good for the development of noble rot but only "tidying up" passes to remove any berries affected by sour rot could be made at the beginning. Two fine passes on the 15/10 brought in a considerable quantity of grapes with good sugar levels. However, the overall quality was just average.
