Product DetailsUnseasonably warm temperatures led to an early harvest for this vintage, which is not only intensely rich and sweet, but also beautifully fresh, racy and with a long finish. High levels of residual sugar have helped to create a richly honeyed example of this legendary Sauternes. Pure and with exemplary range , it will do well in the cellar.

Blend and Origin
2011 Château d'Yquem, Sauternes
Due to a very warm spring, the harvest started and ended early, with picking commencing in the first week of September - the earliest harvest for the past 125 years. The grapes for this blend, 80% sémillon and 20% sauvignon blanc, were carefully picked at intervals to coincide with the changeable weather.
Additional delivery charges may apply. This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
A first course of foie gras will complement the richness of this wine.
A decadent dish of lobster served in its shell is an ideal match.
