Château D'Yquem


A year with contrasting weather conditions, in which cool summer temperatures and warm autumn ones led to a rare balance between acidity and richness. The harvest of grapes used to make 2014 Y took place in the first two weeks of September. There were two passes altogether. The first one, from the 1st to the 4th of September, was of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from various terroirs, as well as early-maturing Sémillon that showed amazing freshness. The second phase lasted from the 10th to the 12th of September. This brought in grapes that were slightly richer, but confirmed this vintage's freshness. 2014 Y is a brilliant blend showcasing fruitiness, power, and freshness. It is reminiscent of the 2007 and 2011 vintages.
