Château D'Yquem


Early spring weather was superb, but cold and wet from May to September. Rain fell virtually every day until the 2nd of October. Botrytis encountered enormous difficulty in concentrating the grapes, and the harvest was considerably delayed. Three weeks of calm weather nevertheless made for a wonderful crop with very high potential alcohol even though gapes picked in November were somewhat diluted. The 1963 vintage was very complicated and called for extremely rigorous sorting of grapes and selection of wines to retain.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
