Château D'Yquem


A year of capricious weather, with alternating hot and cold, including frost in April that did no great harm, but reduced the potential crop. A cold, dry period arrived in September, causing slow ripening in Sémillon conducive to great aromatic purity. The 2008 Y harvest was fairly late, with picking on the 29th of September as well as the 2nd and 6th of October.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
