CHATEAU
Chateau d'Yquem was established in December of 1593 when Jacques de Sauvage exchanged other properties that he owned for the 'House of Yquem'. Sauvage acquired Yquem from the French monarchy. In 1785, during the reign of Louis XVI, Francoise Josephine de Sauvage (the "Lady of Yquem") married Louis Amedee de Lur Saluces. He was the godson of Louis XV and Lady Victoire de France. The size of Chateau d'Yquem was the same in 1788 as it is today.

After a bitter split in the Lur Saluces family in the late 1990's, Chateau d'Yquem was purchased by a subsidiary of the LVMH group (Louis Vitton - Moet - Hennesy).
I do not call Yquem a wine, as there are « wines » and Yquem is unique. I prefer the term nectar…Let's drink the light!

In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Château d'Yquem was the only Sauternes given this rating, indicating its perceived superiority.

Considered as the greatest white wine in the world!

80% sémillon, 20% sauvignon

To drink now
The yield averages 9 hl per hectare, compared to the usual 12 to 20 hl per hectare in Sauternes
The grapes are pressed three times
Very intense spicy and floral aromas on the nose. Rich exotic fruits of mango and pineapple on the palate. Powerful and dense with wonderful lifting acidity. Caramel butterscotch flavours on the very long finish.
Parker: 98
There are a wide variety of approaches to matching food with this wine and much of the decision depends on the age of the wine. A classic match is to serve d'Yquem with Fois Gras. Other pairings would be to serve as dessert along with dishes that feature apricots, pears or peaches.
