Château D'Yquem


2013 will be remembered for the extremely strong contrast between spring and summer. The very sunny summer weather raised great hopes for the vintage.
The window during which "Y" could be picked was very small, especially for Sauvignon Blanc. In fact, in a single day - the 23rd of September - we picked all the Sauvignon Blanc grapes, which displayed perfect aromatic maturity, as well as Sémillon grapes on gravelly plots that were not yet botrytised. It was high time to do so since botrytis had started to develop at lightning-quick speed, and the picking of grapes used to make Yquem began just two days later.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
