Description

A Powerful and Pure Château d’Yquem of Great Pedigree

Product of an exceptionally hot and dry summer season, the superb Château d’Yquem 2016 shines bright, revealing a wonderful purity and elegance, confirming its status as a true icon among the Grands Crus Classés of Sauternes.

Having begun on September 27, 2016, the harvest lasted until November 4, with 4 successive passes. Nearly 75% of the harvest was carried out in the last 2 weeks. The selection of the grapes (75% Sémillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc) was extremely precise, ensuring that only fully botrytised grapes with perfect acidity levels were included in the blend. The result is a testament to the hard work and attention of the technical teams at Château d'Yquem, under the direction of the talented Francis Mayeur.

Along with its great finesse and subtlety, the Château d'Yquem 2016 reveals a complex and nuanced yet pure aromatic bouquet. Fresh notes of white fruit and floral fragrances give way to delicious exotic fruit flavours, like mango, vanilla and beeswax. On the palate, the Château d'Yquem 2016 is a luscious nectar, packed with exotic and candied fruits, along with a hint of caramel. Its texture reveals a brilliant purity, elegance and finesse. And finally, a beautifully vibrant acidity, so emblematic of the Yquem style, stretches long into a persistent finish that offers a brilliant shock of freshness at the end. A superb and complex Château d'Yquem of great pedigree. A great Sauternes, promising a fantastic evolution in the bottle.
