Made to last over a century in the cellar, the wines of Château d’Yquem offer the fantastic advantage of also being enjoyable in their early years. This is the case with the excellent 2015 vintage, which is already magical to drink. The year’s optimum weather conditions helped capture the character of all of Yquem’s individual terroirs, from the fiery hot gravel to the clay where grapes ripen slower, giving the wine remarkable opulence and freshness. The nose is intense with fine, ripe aromas, while the palate is dense and full yet at the same time soft and very elegant. To achieve such wonders, the only Premier Cru Classé Supérieur of Sauternes relies on its extraordinary terroir as well as a highly talented team.
2015 Blend: 75% Sémillon, 25% Sauvignon
