Sauternes - France

Bottle size: Bottle (0.75L)
Region: Sauternes

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.

    The cork moved and the wine came out during delivery.

    Before shipping the seller should check if the cork is firm and stable or not.

    Good afternoon, according to the files I sent you, you can check that the bottle was sent with all the guarantees and in perfect conditions of packaging, so I did not understand what could happen.

    Best regards.

    Vinos y corchos destrozados. El Vega Sicilia reserva especial único de 1992 horrible, se nota que había pasado mucho calor, imbebible. Y el tondonia gran reserva 1954 el corcho sin tocarlo también hundido dentro de la botella. Así no se pueden vender vinos en estas condiciones.

    Buenas tardes Señor Carlos, mis vinos son al 99/100 bebibles.

    Puede usted seguirme en Ebay.es con el mismo seudónimo: colecciona53
    ( 626) botos todos positivos y excelentes calificaciones.

    Puede que sea cuestión de mala suerte pero los vinos viejos a veces pasan estas cosas.

    Saludos.
