"Yquem’s greatness and uniqueness are certainly a result of a number of factors.

"First, it has a perfect location that is said to have its own microclimate. Second, the Lur Saluces family installed an elaborate drainage system with over 60 miles of pipes. Third, there is a fanatical obsession at Yquem to produce only the finest wines regardless of financial loss or trouble.

"It is this last factor that is the biggest reason why Yquem is so superior to its neighbours."

98 Bright aromas of sliced mango, papaya, botrytis, and lemon follow through to a full body, with a medium sweet and phenolic palate that gives the wine structure and beauty. Electric acidity and freshness yet an impressive energy and length. A severe selection was made. 40% of the production was destined to the grand vin.
