Château d'Yquem "Sauternes" 2008 AC/MC - white

The grapes are pressed in numerous stages in the winery immediately after transport. After this the juice is immediately filled into new oak barrels where the fermentation process begins. The wine remains in these oak barrels for the next 30 months with regular racking and filling up. It is very rare that the entire grape harvest becomes Yquem. It is possible that in the more disappointing years the entire harvest is rejected. Thus, we are missing nine vintages in the 20th Century and the 2012 vintage is the first missing year of the new century.

  • Grape varieties: 75% Sémillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc
  • Recommandation: Drink with oysters, goose liver, fish and white meat, diverse desserts, e.g. apple cake, Brie
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Maturity: from now until 2050
  • White wine; bottle of 75 cl
