  • Product Details

    Full yet fresh, this vintage of Château d’Yquem’s dry white has an attractive bouquet of lemon, grapefruit and white peach, with a light oakiness imparted by ageing in French barrels. Crafted from grapes harvested earlier than those used in the maison's much-lauded sweet Sauternes wines, Y is unique dry white wine that demonstrates the diversity and quality of this maison's iconic vineyards.

  • Blend and Origin

    Unusually, the grapes for this wine – a blend of sauvignon (75%) and sémillon (25%) – were picked at exactly the same time. The sémillon grapes ripened as early as the sauvignon, coming in with higher sugar levels on the exact same date. Ripe golden grapes and those lightly spotted with the botrytis needed for the maison's sweet Sauternes were blended to create a perfectly harmonious vintage.
