Château D'Yquem


A very warm spring, marked by a late frost on the 2nd of May (-2°) that damaged the top of the branches, but miraculously spared the flower clusters. This was followed by a summer that was far more hot and dry than average. This weather lasted until autumn. There were only 13 mm of precipitation between August and October. Picking entailed 5 passes and 6 solid weeks of work interrupted only by a day off on Sunday. The grapes came in with perfect sugar levels (over 22° potential alcohol) and great acidity. A vintage that epitomises complexity.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
