Chateau YQUEM Sauternes 2007
Wine Region: France
Grape: 75% Sémillon, 22% Sauvignon Blanc, 3% Muscadelle
Tasting notes: The 2007 vintage reminded them of a combination of 1997, the legendary 1967 and the stylish 1988. The wealth of flavour on the palate is seamless and completely mouthfilling without yet showing the glorious detail to come, while the finish is sensationally long. This has lived up to every expectation in 2007 and will surely be considered as one of the truly great d'Yquems of all time.
