Château d'Yquem

The Château d'Yquem is the Sauternes that made the history of the denomination, the first and only sweet white wine to obtain the recognition of " Premier Cru Supérieur " in the historic Bordeaux Classification of 1855. It is produced from grapes that carry structure, the Sémillon , and finesse, the Sauvignon Blanc, coming from vineyards located in an enclave of Graves, in the southwest part of Bordeaux , where the ideal conditions for the development of Botrytis cinerea, or "noble rot" , which once colonized the bunches, transforms sugars into substances that will help to characterize their aromas and flavor, in all its refinement.

From a starting color pale golden yellow, it gradually takes on darker colors, acquiring amber reflections that change into bronze. Its fresher floral hints of tropical fruit and vanilla evolve into elegant hints of honey, saffron, caramel and toasted walnuts. On the palate it expresses all its sweetness, richness and depth, but is supported by a good acidic shoulder that keeps it fresh and vital. With a consistency similar to silk, it guarantees a unique tasting experience , the result of an inimitable terroir, an ancestral savoir-faire, meticulous and passionate care.

Even if pairing with desserts is immediate, the complexity of this product makes it the ideal accompaniment to Asian cuisine, sushi, fresh, seasoned or blue cheeses (Roquefort, Gorgonzola, etc.), and foie gras , which represents the most classic combination. It can be served with seafood, oysters, crabs, lobster. It is suggested to serve the youngest vintages at 9 ° C and the older ones at slightly higher temperatures (12 ° C).
