Considered the best sweet wine in the world, Y de Yquem is the Dry White Bordeaux from Château d'Yquem. Located south of Bordeaux, the château's vineyard covers 113 hectares and is cultivated in the traditional way.
"There is a wine apart, it was able to free itself from Yquem" Pierre Lurton
The 2019 weather forecast is characterized by a cool and watered spring, followed by a very hot phase from June to mid-August. The heatwave allows the vines to catch up a little delay and contributes to the very rapid advancement of maturation. These conditions allow us to start the Y 2019 harvest early on. Between August 26 and September 5, we collect the bunches for our great dry white wine. The balance between richness and freshness, guaranteeing the quality of the dry vintage, is then perfect.
Y is a powerful wine which is the potential of the raisins of the Yquem domain. The richness and aroma of this wine are matched by the subtle, very balanced sweetness, which recalls its pedigree and gives it unique characteristics.
We recommend that you reserve today, the vintage will be rare.
The advice of 12bouteilles: This Dry white wine can be appreciated as young as in a few years, perfect with every great meal, a pure gem and a 5* dry white from Bordeaux.
