Details
From a difficult year, the maison has crafted a wine that truly represents its own Sauternes style. Depth, freshness and length are displayed elegantly in this magnum.
Rich and bright flavours of candied fruits are backed up by razor-sharp acidity in this vintage, culminating in an impressively pure and very long finish.

BLEND & ORIGIN WINES

BLEND AND ORIGIN:
Château d'Yquem 2013

A blend of sémillon (70%) and sauvignon (30%), the 2013 vintage is the result of a growing season remembered for wild contrasts.
 

Spring was extremely wet and cool, and summer unusually hot and long, which provided noble rot the perfect conditions to flourish.
 

During harvest, the grape selection was very strict allowing only the best grapes to be picked and produce this splendid Sauternes.
