Sauternes - France

Region: Sauternes
Year: 1988
Bottle size: Bottle (0.75L)

1 bottle of white wine - Chateau D'yquem - vintage of 1988
label damaged

Yquem is one of the most extraordinary, unique and astonishing wines in the world. There is no question that it is France’s greatest sweet wine, and for centuries it has been top of the list of the country’s greatest whites – Thomas Jefferson was impressed enough with it in 1787 to order a shipment to be sent back to America. The attention to detail and the uncompromising quest for perfection that go into making this wine are outstanding and unique. Grapes are picked individually, selected for their degree of noble rot at just the right moment. A whole vine will produce just one glass of sweet, golden nectar. If a batch falls below standard it is sold off as anonymous Sauternes. The result is, of course, astonishing. A wonderfully complex, sweet, rich, fascinating drink that ages for decades and even centuries.

Yquem is indisputedly the best wine in Sauternes and may well be the finest sweet wine in the world. Meticulously made with incredible power, texture, complexity and ageing potential.

Powerful, intense, rich wine; astonishingly complex; perfectly balanced and a fine, persistent finish.
The king of sweet wines, Yqeum is painstakingly handmade, with no trouble or expense spared.
The sweet wines of this incredible estate have been prized for centuries as among the world's greatest.
Spends three years in barrel, and keeps and improves for 15, 50, even 100+ years in great vintages.
Yquem recommend trying this with oysters, lobster, foie gras, or just on its own.
