Château d'Yquem 2014

Bordeaux - Sauternes - 1er Cru Classé - Sweet wine -

The famous Château Yquem, 1st Cru Classé of Sauternes wines, produces great white wines, complex and gourmet.

The 2014 vintage comes from a Sémillon and Sauvignon Blanc blend, grown in the Château's 113-hectare vineyard.

The Château Yquem 2014 adorns a dazzling and sparkling gold color dress. Elegant and very aromatic, the nose reveals complex aromas of honey combined with the scents of almond and white chocolate.

It presents a very balanced palate with a nice acidity. The attack is lively and harmonious revealing delicious aromas of fresh lemon and citrus with hints of ginger and white chocolate. The finish is extremely long and flexible.

The advice of 12bouteilles: Château d'Yquem can be appreciated as young as in a few years.

 "The Château Yquem 2014 was picked over 9 weeks this year, with one-quarter of the grapes picked prior to 15 September. It delivers 134 grams per liter residual sugar and 7.3 grams per liter tartaric acid, with a pH 3.60. It has a captivating bouquet (I know...I know...what else were you expecting) But it entrances with its pure, wild honey notes mixed with almond and white chocolate scents, bestowed with beguiling delineation and focus. The palate is very poised with the acidity nigh on perfect. Occasionally an Yquem only reveals its components parts at this early juncture, necessitates conjecture. However the 2014 has a sense of harmony and completeness already, as if the élevage is merely there to usher it on to its finished state. There is undeniably great depth here, perhaps less conspicuous than other vintages because of that silver thread of acidity: notes of lemon sherbet, orange zest, shaved ginger and again, a few flakes' of white chocolate. It is extremely long with tenderness rather than power on the finish. It's not quite up there in the rarefied heights of say, the 2001 or 2009, but it is what we call in the trade, the business." - Wine Advocate-Parker
