A smooth and balanced fine Sauternes wine

The producer

Château d'Yquem’s reputation has been built up over the last 400 years, culminating in 1855 when it was raised to the rank of Premier Cru Classé Supérieur in the official classification ordered by Napoleon III for the Universal Exhibition in Paris. The only name to have reached this level, Yquem is undoubtedly one of the legends of fine wines.

The vineyard

Château d'Yquem has a hundred hectares under production, planted with 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc. The Ciron River, a tributary of the Garonne, is essential in the production of Sauternes wines and provides an exceptional micro-climate for the vines of the estate. Indeed, it is thanks this micro-climate that the morning fogs develop in autumn, just before the harvest, leading to the appearance of the noble rot, Botrytis Cinerea. In addition to the characteristics of both the terroir and the climate, Château d'Yquem's reputation also owes a great deal to its know-how and its high standards. With a drastically limited yield, Château d'Yquem produces Sauternes wines whose rarity only adds to its prestige.

The blend

Château d'Yquem 2005 comprises a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc.

The tasting


The colour is brilliant.


Combining intense fruity (figs, dried fruit, apricot compote) and vanilla fragrances with floral notes (jasmine, acacia flower). On aeration, tasty and refreshing zesty notes are revealed.


The precise and suave attack gives way to a mouth with a silky touch and perfect balance. The palate is long and fresh with aromas of orange nonettes, liquorice and gingerbread.
