ABOUT THE WINE
Chateau d'Yquem is often described as the greatest sweet wine in the world. After centuries of family ownership, Yquem was finally sold in acrimonious circumstances to Louis Vuitton-Moët-Hennessy in 1999. However, its former owner and director Alexandre de Lur-Saluce remains in charge. Yquem is located on the highest hill in Sauternes and enjoys the best growing conditions in the whole appellation. The 110-hectare vineyard is planted with 80% Sèmillon and 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Only fully botrytized fruit is picked by the 150 highly skilled pickers and yields are so low that each vine produces only one glass of wine.

TASTING NOTES
Beautifully made, with a gorgeous nose of tropical fruits, peaches, coconut, and apricots. Surprisingly well-integrated acidity, and a seamless, full-bodied power, unctuously-textured; just starting to reveal its complexity and enormous weight.

FOOD PAIRING
Parma ham, blue cheese, foie gras and any kind of desserts.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
A wine for special occasions, and of great elegance.
