Château d'Yquem is a 1st Cru Classé of Sauternes wines. Its reputation is such that it is considered the best sweet wine in the world. It's a rare bottle.
This 2011 vintage from Château d'Yquem has a beautiful golden robe with silver highlights. The nose offers an explosive bouquet of yellow fruits, peaches, mango, white flowers or spice pine. In the mouth, it is a tasty wine with a nice attack acidity, then an incredible richness of exotic fruits. Very long, persistent, the finish is very elegant, we discover the tastes of botrytised berries.
The advice of 12bouteilles: Château d'Yquem can be appreciated as young as in a few years. We think we should drink it alone without trying to tune it with a dish.
