product Details

Chateau d'Yquem 1968 Sauternes 1er-Cru-Superior

The wines of Sauternes are produced from a blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc, left on the vines until affected by the noble fungus, Botrytis Cinerea, which dehydrates the grapes to raisins, leaving only the sweet sugary pulp with which to make the most incredible sweet wine.

One of the world’s most prized and enviable wines, Château d’Yquem is Sauternes’ only classified Premier-Cru-Supérieur, and recognised as one of the top with of Bordeaux.  Owing to their stature, quality and desirability, for the sake of your health and your bank balance, please drink Château d’Yquem responsibly.
