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.

Wine SpectatorFloral, lemon, apple and cream with dried pineapple and apricot. Full-bodied, but very focused and refined. It starts slowly and then, wham! It goes on and on. Spicy, dried fruits and spices. Full-bodied, medium-sweet. So long and exciting. It is very close to 2001. We will see.

Wine EnthusiastThis isn't sweet, but just so wonderfully rich. It's the concentration of botrytis that makes the wine. The texture is velvet, but with a spicy bite to it. Apricot, honey and marzipan all contribute to a wine that will age over decades.

Wine AdvocateSomewhat muted floral aromas of jasmine, orange blossom and honeysuckle over candied pineapple. A waft of anise and some cedar. The palate is quite restrained with well balanced sweetness versus medium to high acidity. Very long finish - a mineral character coming through.
