2014 Chateau d'Yquem Sauternes

Avg. Rating: 
(0)

It's hard to taste a sip of Château d'Yquem Sauternes and not be transported. It's one of the most ethereal, sublime sweet wines you can put in your mouth. From Jefferson and Washington to the Tsars of Russia, d'Yquem's list of fans is centuries old and many thousands of names long.

D'Yquem [DEE-kemm] is a blend of primarily Sémillon (80%) and Sauvignon Blanc (20%), from fanatically low yields-one vine typically produces one glass or less. Pickers typically pick the 90-hectare vineyard in 6 passes to ensure that only perfectly botrytized fruit is harvested. The level of care exercised here is simply unparalleled in the world, let alone France. Honey. Crème brulée. Pineapple. Apricot. Exotic spices. In order to fully appreciate what we're describing, you should experience this wine.

2014 would be a nice place to start:

"This is beguiling, with acacia, jasmine and honeysuckle notes leading the way, followed by refined peach, tangerine and yellow apple fruit flavors. Very long, with a lemon chiffon note lingering delicately." - Wine Spectator

A six-pack of the 2014 wine would be an incredibly smart buy. Back vintages of comparable quality and ratings retail for $500 and up!
