Y d'Yquem 2020

Bordeaux - White Bordeaux - White Wine -

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 unusual weather conditions in 2020 led to the start of the Y harvest on August 13.
This is the earliest harvest ever in Yquem.
On August 13, we begin a “sorting” of the sauvignons, picked at their optimum aromatic maturity. A second passage completes the harvest of this grape on August 19. This preserves the acidity so precious to their balance. We let the semillons reach their full maturity for Y, when their refined skin begins to weaken, and harvest on August 27.
This is the date that the 2020 Y picking ends.
Alcohol level: 14% Vol - Residual sugars: 7 g / L - Total acidity: 4 g / L H2SO4 - pH: 3.20
Sauvignon 75% - Sémillon 25%

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.
