Château D'Yquem


Temperatures were constantly 1-2° lower than usual throughout the growing season. Rainfall was average, except for the month of August (when it was above average). The harvest began at a slow rhythm in late September. However, there were 4 weeks of uninterrupted picking in October. Unfortunately, the potential alcohol level never went past 17°. The wine reflects a particularly cold year that called for skill and expertise to make the final blend from very diverse lots.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
