|"Y" or Ygrec, is the luxury dry cuvée produced by Château d’Yquem, one of the world’s most famous wine estates. This extremely rare wine - only 10,000 bottles are produced each year - is made from special plots of Sauvignon Blanc and from Semillon grapes picked at the fleeting moment that they begin to botrytise, i.e. the skins turn pink. Aged in oak, one third new and the remaining two-thirds old Yquem barrels.
"Y” d’Yquem 2015 hails from what the late Denis Dubourdieu called a "tremendous" year for dry Bordeaux whites. Wine Spectator said that “Dry whites look very, very strong, with Sauvignon Blanc harvested under ideal conditions." Combine that with the fact that Bill Blatch called it “a dream vintage for Sauternes” and you have an exquisitely balanced wine with laser-like acidity and exotic elements of the finest Sauternes.
This dry white Bordeaux has real exclusivity, not only due to its pedigree, but also due to its rarity, which keeps it relatively under-the-radar, the preserve of savvy, in-the-know collectors who buy on release...

75% Sauvignon 25% Semillon. Picked from across the Yquem vineyard, rather than a separate site. Incredibly concentrated and vibrant on the nose with tropical fruit and pineapple character. Gorgeous acidity that perfectly balances the weight and richness that are the hallmarks of the 2015 vintage. Very ripe and fruit driven that makes it stunning now, but with hints of savoury and herbacous complexity that should develop with ageing. Very Impressive length, keeps you coming back for more. White wine buyers will want to snap this up. Only 10,000 btls per vintage.
