Château d’Yquem : Century of History
Château d’Yquem, the Icon.
From Tsar Alexander’s court to the Emperor Meiji, via the Founding Father Thomas Jefferson, Château d’Yquem vintages stand the test of time, building its Legend. Unique estate classified 1er Cru Supérieur and among the few permitting itself to skip a vintage when the quality does not match its standards (1910, 1915, 1930, 1951, 1952, 1964, 1972, 1974, 1992 et 2012), Château d’Yquem takes a unique place in the world of Fine Wines.
And when the cork, it works like a charm.
Château d’Yquem 2015 : the style of Yquem
This vintage 2015 ( 75% Sémillon, 25% White Sauvignon) is simply amazing and offers an absolute purity. Exuberant yes! But with tension and complexity that lead it to the pantheon of the estate. 98/100 by Neal Martin, 99/100 by James Suckling, 20/20 by René Gabriel, 2015 is just astonishing! Even “the best ever made” according to Francis Mayeur, technical director and living memory of the estate.

Y d’Yquem 2016 : the exception of Yquem
And to add some magic, since 1959, Ch. d’Yquem also produces a dry White wine. With an annual production of 10,000 bottles a year, “Y” d’Yquem (pronounced “ee-grek” in French) is a confidential wine, made from the same outstanding terroir and the same vines as Château d’Yquem. Only 33 vintages have been released since almost 60 years. This 2016 will be so the N°34, for our greatest pleasure.
