Average critic rating : 97.63 points



The Yquem 2007 sports a clear gold hue with youthful green tints. The nose is very pure, understated at first, unfurling with aeration in the glass, offering honey, acacia, Mirabelle and a hint of apple blossom. The palate has a viscous entry, very pure with honey, white peach, fresh pear, lemon and orange zest, a tangible sense of vibrancy and vigour. Not a powerful Yquem, but one of incisive focus and nervosite, very pure botrytis, adorned with an almost tense zesty finish that succinctly counterpoises the residual sugar. This is an outstanding Yquem, surpassed only by the 2001 during this decade. Drink 2012-2050. Neal Martin, Wine Advocate April 2010



This is amazing. Full of spicy botrytis character, with smoke and piecrust underneath. Full and rich, yet not cloying or too dense. It's lively and long, finishing with intensity and powerl. A unnerving combination of wild ripe fruit and intense botrytis, with lively acidity. Really powerful. Should be a perfect wine. James Suckling, winespectator.com



Deep golden with an orange tinge. Very tangy. And thick. At the same time. Massive weight! Extraordinary fullness. An edge of something a bit corrective - almost bitter. Very big and hits you between eyeballs. Citrus pith. Needs to settle down and become more gentle. Big and round. Almost over the top. So rich!!!!! But definite bitterness on the finish. Winemaker Sandrine Garbay, who has been there an incredible 14 years, thinks the 2001 has more finesse. I agree. Jancis Robinson, jancisrobinson.com



Very aromatic and unctuous with a lovely point of freshness coming through at the end. On the palate there is a great concentration and richness (130g residual sugar in this sample). Very unctuous yet complex and fresh. A touch of alcohol shows through on the finish but these are early days and this is only a marker for the finished article. This will be one of the great Yquem vintages, though on the day Climens was even more impressive. Decanter.com

Château d’Yquem is arguably the finest sweet wine in the World, and the leading estate in Sauternes. In a league of its own, the only wine that Yquem can be fairly judged against is a different vintage of Yquem.

The château and its vineyards lie on the highest point of Sauternes, and is planted to Semillon (80%) and Sauvignon Blanc. Semillon gives the wine its weight and oleaginous texture, the Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes are harvested by hand, bunch by bunch, with as many as six or seven passes through the vineyard to select grapes that are fully botrytised and concentrated. One vine will, on average, yield one glass of the final product.

Yquem is owned by LVMH, owners of Dom Pérignon and Krug, and is run by Pierre Lurton, who also runs St Emilion’s Cheval Blanc. A dry white wine, Ygrec, is also made.
