Review

Y d'Yquem has achieved its own special place in one of the world's most prestigious châteaux. On occasions elusive and always difficult to classify due to its unique character, it's no wonder that the great experts attribute to it characteristics accruing to the fine wines of Alsace and Burgundy. In its youth it's citrus and floral, with intense peach aromas; time turns it honeyed, seductive... an absolute must. Despite having between 6 and 8 grams of residual sugar, it's virtually dry on the palate, thanks to its exceptional acidity and its magnificent freshness.

D´Yquem es algo único. Dificilmente comparable a otros vinos. Es una excepción milagrosa .

Hermoso amarillo ligermante pajizo. Despues de una buena decantación, en nariz se pueden apreciar aromas extremadamente complejos, entre los que destacan albaricoque o membrillo. Puede percibirse otros aromas afrutados como almendra y piña. Matices avainillados y café tostado culminan la complejidad de este extraordinario vino Sauternes y terminamos dando gracias al producto de esas uvas botrytizadas con lágrimas en lo ojos.
