"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."

— Robert Parker

 

Notes and Reviews

Neil Martin (98)

It is a slow-burner, the nose understated at first but unfurling with each passing moment with subtle scents of freshly sliced apricots, clementine, clear honey and white flowers. There is an underlying minerality that really defines this bouquet. The palate is similar to the nose, revealing hidden facets with almost each swirl of the glass – orange blossom, limestone, white peach and honeysuckle. This is such a precise d’Yquem; it is after you have swallowed the wine that one comprehends just how brilliant it is.
