Chateau d’Yquem is an absolute triumph of sweet wines. This liquid gold is produced from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon in Bordeaux, and is the only sweet white wine producer with a classification of premier cru superieur. Apart from being in a unique climate in Sauternes which allows botrytis grapes to grow, its excellence also comes from winemaking knowledge in which they have centuries of experience dating back to the 1500s. They only release a vintage under its own label when quality of grapes are up to their standards, otherwise they are sold off to other producers. Due to the climate, the grapes go through a "noble rot" and shrivel thus produce very little juice but which is exactly what makes the juice incredibly concentrated and produces the sweet and elegant wines they are known for, but also the very reason why their bottles cost a pretty penny. Despite the relatively higher price-point, quality is always guaranteed and the wines can be aged spectacularly well.
