Sauternes - Château Yquem 1990 6L

The domain

Yquem remains and will remain the greatest and most famous sweet wine in the world. For a hundred years, this unique Premier Cru Classé Superior stands out from other Bordeaux wines with its exemplary consistency, even in small vintages and difficult periods. Under the direction of Pierre Lurton, already at the head of White horse, the vintage has only produced great masterpieces for around ten years, deserving more than ever its status as a legendary wine.The particularity of Yquem comes from its unique terroir. Here, botrytis grows like nowhere else and offers Sauternes absolutely marvelous, with controlled sumptuousness and incredible gade potential which places it far ahead of all its neighbors. Yes, Yquem, is a myth on its own and yes, the prices are high. But Yquem it’s excellence in its purest form: no lover of sweet wine should stop tasting it at least once in their life…

Tasting: "A vintage which testifies to a beautiful hot and dry year, almost to excess; insolently easy harvests lasting four weeks, barely interspersed with weekends to keep up the intensive pace. Exceptional weather, ideal harvests and an extraordinary vintage, of rare success. A typical Grand Yquem and a clever balance of power and finesse." - Yquem Castle
