Blend and Origin
2014 Château d'Yquem, Sauternes
The weather in 2014 was ideal, with three periods of botrytis growth and multiple waves of picking over nine weeks. The first wave was particularly early for the maison, beginning on 5 September, and some 25% of the crop was brought in before 15 September, providing a rare and precious background of acidity to this blend of sémillon (75%) and sauvignon blanc (25%).
This product can only be purchased by persons over 18 years of age.
