Château d'Yquem 2006 Sauternes Half Bottle

Availability: In stock

A brilliant golden colour. The nose is still shy but we discern hints of apricot, peach and coconut. Creamy rich texture on the nose. The wine starts out quite round on the palate, plenty of volume, with a lively and rich evolution. Beautiful structure, the wine has excellent fullness and length. The vintage 2006 was not so easy but with a very strict selection in the vineyard and cellar that wine made the best possible use of the different soils of Yquem.

Chateau d'Yquem 2006 Premier Grand Cru Classé Sauternes
More information:
The History of Sauternes is actually the history of Yquem. For generations, this Chateau has represented the very summit of Sauternes. In the 1855 classification its wine was ranked above all others and awarded the title Premier Cru Superieur, a status still justified today. The chateau stands proudly atop the highest point in the Sauternes region. In 1593, the Sauvage family acquired Chateau d’Yquem, which came into the Lur Saluces family when Francoise Josephine de Sauvage married Count Louis Amedee de Lur Saluces in 1785. Count Alexandre de Lur Saluces perpetuated his family’s tradition as manager of Chateau d’Yquem for more than 35 years. His efforts were guided by a single philosophy: an uncompromising approach to the highest quality, vintage after vintage. Thanks to his determination, this great wine’s reputation reached new heights. Pierre Lurton, a passionate winemaker, member of a famous Bordeaux wine family took over the management of the estate in 2004. He is also in charge of Chateau Cheval Blanc in Saint-Emilion and Cheval des Andes in Argentina. Château d'Yquem is undoubtedly a unique wine, unchallenged in terms of purity, complexity, longevity and subtlety Union des Grands Crus de Bordeaux
