The domain

Yquem remains and will remain the greatest and most famous sweet wine in the world.

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 ofYquem 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 very early vintage marked by intense heat; very early flowering which began on May 5; record harvest start on September 4, blocked by an absence of rain for 2 months and Botrytis which struggled to develop due to fog alone . A year of excess, which will require 7 sortings and 32 days of harvest until November 4; in the end Yquem 1997 is of rare complexity and perfect balance! - Yquem Castle
