  • Product Details

    Unseasonably 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.

    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.


Food pairing:
