Yields from the 1984 vintage were low at Château d'Yquem. However, the overall quality of the vintage is satisfactory. We are talking about a rather classic vintage. Château d'Yquem 1984 presents aromas of frozen pineapple and smoked almonds. A great success for the Château.

Falstaff
(12-2016) Bright red gold with amber reflections. Intense bouquet, nuances of bergamot and orange oil. Complex on the palate, honey nuances, powerful and spicy wood, salty minerality in the background, the alcohol appears a little later, delicate drying tannins are heard, nuances of canned peaches on the finish, has perhaps already passed its peak in the standard bottle.

(05-2014) Copper color. Nice fruity nose, finely woody and vanilla. Very fruity, tasty taste, with a marked saffron taste. A little bitter finish.

(01-1998) This is a surprisingly good wine made under very trying conditions. Yquem began to harvest on October 15 and made the last pass through the vineyards on November 13. Seventy-five percent of the crop was retained for Yquem. The wine at present exhibits a great deal of toasty oak in the bouquet, which is also filled with scents of smoked almonds, glazed pineapples, and honey and caramel. In the mouth, the wine is less flamboyant, with less glycerin and power than usual, but it is still a rich, full-bodied Yquem with a great deal of personality and character. It will not have the great aging potential of the top vintages, but I fully expect it to last at least another 20 years.

Château d'Yquem
Château d'Yquem

The Château d'Yquem is an area of 133 hectares including 113 hectares of vineyards, 102 acres operated, south of Bordeaux in Sauternes region that produces a sweet white wine ranked Premier Cru Superior, the only wine from the Sauternes category.

It is considered by many as the best Sauternes. The yield is only 6 hectoliters per hectare and in some years, if the quality is not deemed sufficient, the bottles are not sold under this label.

The wines are characterized by their complexity due to a significant amount of residual sugar and flavorings made by Botrytis cinerea. A relatively high acidity helps offset the sweetness. Another characteristic for which Château d'Yquem is known is his longevity. In good years does present a bottle of his outstanding after one or two decades in a cellar and with care it will keep for a century or more, adding to the complexity...

Since 1959 Chateau d'Yquem produces a dry white wine named "Y" (and before 2004 "Y Lur-Saluces") makes an equal proportion of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. This wine, like great wine is not produced every year. The 2005 vintage was the first vintage of Yquem offered for sale en primeur.
