Chateau d’Yquem ex Cellar Offer 2021

Six vintages of the immortal Chateau d’Yquem shipped direct from their cellars – a not to be missed opportunity and at razor sharp prices

How do you describe Chateau d’Yquem? Liquid Gold? ….Perhaps just simply the best sweet wine in the world? For it is the best, quite clearly, and by a long way. No other Sauternes possesses the power, the concentration, the sheer depth of character. The others do not achieve the weight, the richness or the lusciousness of Yquem, the combination of ripe fruit and delicious fresh acidity which gives Yquem the balance to match its breed. CLIVE COATES, The Finest Chateau of Bordeaux

Yquem, Château d’, the greatest wine of sauternes and, according to the famous 1855 classification, of the entire bordeaux region. It is sweet, golden, and apparently almost immortal. JANCIS ROBINSON MW

I don’t know if there is much in the world that can put a smile on the faces of people who love great wine as readily or as assuredly as d’Yquem.

We are in the process of arranging to receive a parcel of back vintages from the Chateau, and the 2017, that includes some of the greatest years in the last couple of decades. The wines have all been stored in ideal conditions at Chateau d’Yquem and are, in the context of the world’s greatest sweet wine, remarkable value.

As you would expect, with an offer of this kind, there isn’t a huge amount of any one wine to go around, there is enough though to be able to purchase them in reasonable quantities, a refreshing change from the usual limitations placed on offers like this.

The wines are due to arrive later this year or early next and are being offered at a once off pre arrival price. Any residual wine will not be offered at these prices again.

This is a remarkable opportunity to acquire some of the best vintages from this hallowed property, direct from the Chateau, that should add lustre to any cellar and provide unparalleled pleasure for everyone once the occasion arises to open one.

    Tasted single blind against its peers. Under blind conditions, the Yquem 2007 shines like a diamond. Nevertheless, it is initially rather taciturn on the nose, eventually opening up beautifully with touches of lemon curd, Mirabelle, and clear honey. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine definition and there seems to be a great deal of energy and vigor dispensed for your pleasure. There is such race and nervosity, and then that finish just purrs with harmony and focus. This Yquem feels just so alive and vivacious, yet there is an effortless quality here that is unmatched by its peers. Tasted January 2011. (98) NEAL MARTIN

    Chateau d'Yquem 2006 375ml

    PRE ARRIVAL - DUE EARLY 2022
    While no surprise here, this wine, which will be bottled in 2009, is certainly this estate's greatest effort since their 2001. It completely outclasses everything from the appellation, but even when you're number one, that's often hard to do. This light gold wine offers up a sensational smorgasbord of aromas including huge honeyed pineapple and other caramelized tropical fruit flavors, massive richness, and a viscous, unctuous texture with the oak beautifully integrated. The wine has enough acidity to buttress its full-bodied mouthfeel, but this is not by any means the sweetest or most alcoholic of the d'Yquems I have tasted. In fact, in the range of d'Yquems, this is a powerful wine, but it is one built more on finesse and elegance, a la the 1988. Nevertheless, this wine will prove to have 50+ years of longevity. The finish, the mid-palate, the sensation of looking at a skyscraper of Semillon with a small dosage of Sauvignon, is impressive. Like all of the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes, one can drink this young, but the nuances and complexities really don't emerge for at least a decade, especially in the case of a wine such as this.

    Chateau d'Yquem 2017 375ml
    The nose opens with very pure notes of freshly sliced oranges, yuzu and lemon barley water with hints of white pepper, fresh ginger and lime cordial. The incredibly rich, unctuous sweetness (148 grams per liter of residual sugar) is beautifully marbled with bright, vivacious citrus fruit and spice flavors, while lifted by well-knit freshness, and it finishes with epic length and great depth.

    Containing 135 grams per liter of residual sugar, the pale lemon-gold colored 2016 d'Yquem leaps from the glass with honeyed apricots, pineapple, green mango, crushed rocks, candied ginger, coriander seed and citrus peel with hints of orange blossom. The palate is very tightly wound, vibrant and refreshing with layer upon layer of minerals and spices, finishing with epic poise and persistence. (98+) WINE ADVOCATE

    PRE ARRIVAL - DUE EARLY 2022
    Firstly, you notice the color, which is a touch deeper than recent vintages at this stage. The bouquet is quite honeyed and rich for Yquem at this early juncture, with subtle scents of peach skin, white flowers, and a puff of chalk and frangipane. The palate is viscous on the entry, all about the texture at first, coating the mouth with luscious botrytized fruit. There are touches of Seville orange marmalade, fresh apricot, a hint of spice and passion fruit. This is imbued with impressive depth and weight, perhaps an Yquem that is determined to make an impression after last year-s absence. (97) WINE ADVOCATE

    Chateau d'Yquem 2010 375ml
    Picked predominantly over 10 days from October 14, the 2010 d'Yquem has 141gms/L residual sugar and pH 3.80. 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. (98+) WINE ADVOCATE
