CHÂTEAU D'YQUEM, SAUTERNES
BORDEAUX, FRANCE 2016
Château d’Yquem is more than just one of the most widely revered estates in the world – it has achieved an almost mythical status among collectors and critics.
To drink a Sauternes from d'Yquem is to embark upon an experience at once sacred and decadent, in which the lines between wine and art become blurred. The ambrosial aromas, the rich sensuality, the length seemingly without end – it truly is transport in a glass.
And this one is about as good as it gets: Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate, and James Suckling all awarded it 99 points, with Dunnuck calling it "pure magic" and Suckling hailing its "extravagance."
Every grape used is hand-selected, with vignerons making as many as 11 passes through the vineyard over two months of harvest to ensure that only the most perfect grapes are used.
The result of all this painstaking meticulousness?
Each vine produces but one glass of Sauternes a year.
The warm, dry summer in Bordeaux, in 2016, led to wines of both unusual ripeness and uncommon finesse. And this Sauternes, in coupling a remarkable concentration with an almost majestic structure, has proven itself to be not just one of the best in its class, but among the best in the entire show: an extraordinary star in a vintage of greats.
To speak briefly about transport (and now of the logistical kind, and not the metaphoric): bottles have been stored in the winery's cellar, and will be shipped directly to your preferred store from the chateau. As always, authenticity and pristine provenance are of the utmost importance to us, and we endeavor to make this process as smooth and easy as possible.
Don't miss this golden opportunity to secure one of the great wines of our time!
