Description

Chateau Yquem... Sensual, smooth, sweet, round, charming, opulent... there are countless adjectives to describe the pleasurable sensations procured by this great wine.
Apricot, quince, pineapple, almond, verbena, fig, rose, lychee, grapefruit, bitter orange, vanilla, saffron, roasted coffee beans... The smells of an entire market are concentrated in a glass of Yquem.

The 1968 Chateau d'Yquem has a full deep golden colour. Full nose of caramel with nutmeg spice and clear botyritis notes. Full tight caramel butterscotch with a hint of orange on the palate. Mild sweetness and good complexity.

Serving Suggestions:
Yquem's powerful aromas and flavours go together with blue cheeses or an old Comté. To take off, you might wish to try quail, duck, or other poultry. You won't regret the trip.
