Château d'Yquem is the the most sought after sweet wine in the world ... Planted to 80% Semillon and 20% Sauvignon, this legendary First Growth estate is located in the heart of the Sauternes region, and sits atop a small hill overlooking its neighbors. Although much Yquem is enjoyed at a very young age while fresh and lightly sweet, the wine remarkably has the ability to age for 50-75+ years.

Served from an ex-chateau bottle. The millennial 2000 Chateau d’Yquem is a valiant effort in one of the most challenging Sauternes vintages in recent memory. The 2000 is quite deep in color. The nose is crisp and well-defined but not the most complex, as you would expect from a truly challenging growing season in Sauternes. It is pleasant in its own way with delicate scents of tangerine, yellow flowers and Mirabelle. The palate is well-balanced with marmalade tinged opening. I like the acidity here, an Yquem with good race, although it does feel a little tapered toward the finish. Drink now-2025. Tasted March 2014.
