Château D'Yquem


It was very cold from April to September which dashed hopes for good ripeness. The deluge in late September (100 mm in 8 days) was very worrying, but things changed all of a sudden. The rain stopped and it was finally warm. There were two fine passes from the 3rd to the 12th of October and a third from the 16th to the 20th, however it was difficult to find grapes with high enough sugar levels. It took 22 days in a row of energetic picking to reach the desired 20° potential alcohol.
Excessive alcohol consumption is dangerous for your health, drink Yquem in moderation. Terms & conditions
