Château D'Yquem


A vintage with fine weather: a beautiful dry hot summer and a very successful first pass from 26/9 to 3/10, accompanied by a few scattered showers. Picking started up again on 9/10. Temperatures were high, including at night, which was conducive to perfect botrytis. The harvest ended on 26/10. The grapes were very ripe and extremely concentrated. The wine has a subtle balance and is a benchmark vintage for the 1960s and 70s.
