  • Product Details

    Crafted from grapes harvested earlier than those used in the maison's much-lauded sweet Sauternes wines, this Y by Château d'Yquem 2018 is another early vintage, following on from the historically early 2017.

    The result of superb weather conditions, with one unfortunate episode of storms and hail that had a significant impact on yields – only 5,000 bottles will be released instead of the usual 10,000 – making this a rare chance to own an exceptional quality vintage of the maison's still white wine.

    The growing season of the 2018 vintage unfolded under tropical conditions. On 15 July, a violent hailstorm caused considerable damage in sauvignon blanc plots, limiting production of Y. However, 15 August signalled a return to fine weather and, for the third time in history, Y was entirely harvested in August.
