Château D'Yquem


Weather was unusual this year, with unrelenting drought conditions. Furthermore, frost during bud break limited the potential crop. 38 mm of rain on the 1st of September were responsible for the propagation of botrytis. The harvest started early and lasted a long time, with potential alcohol varying from 14 to 30°, offering a good reflection of the complexity offered by Yquem's diverse terroir. 1921 Yquem is very rich, and arguably the finest of the 20th century.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
