This straw-coloured wine has an aroma of herbs and tropical fruit, with hints of lime and green fig. These complex flavours carry through to the creamy, harmonious palate adding to the mineral zesty finish. Ready to drink now and the ideal partner for smoked fish, seafood and creamy poultry or veal dishes.
Deep cherry red with slight purple/plum hue. Aromas of redcurrant, fresh raspberries and black olive balanced by plums, hints of mulberry and cedary spice. Lifted sweet notes of vanilla and cashews. The palate is rich and lively displaying primary red fruits with hints of white pepper and blueberry along with good savoury supporting oak.
Lively acid and slightly chalky tannins give savoury and textural length to the palate.
Château d’Yquem, the undisputed greatest sweet wine in the world. Since 1593, only two families have owned the prestigious Château that sits in a commanding, fortress like, position overlooking most of Sauternes. Only highly skilled and permanent workers tend the vineyards that produce fruit of compelling concentration and intensity. The 1998 d’Yquem was made in an elegant style with wonderfully sweet aromas of crème brulee, pineapples, apricots and white flowers. Medium to full bodied, gorgeously pure, precise and complex.
