NEW RELEASES FROM CHÂTEAU D'YQUEM

2016 CHÂTEAU D'YQUEM

F+R is delighted to offer the highly anticipated 2016 vintage of Château d’Yquem, described as "a magical wine" and "the cream of the 2016 Sauternes crop” by critics Antonio Galloni of Vinous and Jancis Robinson. Bristling with verve, the 2016 is rich and ripe with a texture like lace. Yquem has that amazing ability to be both unctuous and dense whilst retaining a real sense of the ethereal.

In Jancis Robinson’s words, Château d’Yquem is “the greatest wine of Sauternes, and according to the famous 1855 Classification, of the entire Bordeaux region.” Unquestionably the most famous sweet wine on the planet and arguably the finest, Yquem holds a special place in the hearts of wine lovers all around the world and was placed in a category all of its own in the 1855 Classification, as the only Premier Cru Supérieur in Sauternes.

Consistently highly rated by world renowned critics, Yquem is one of the few wines in the world that unites opinion, with critics clamouring to praise its depth, precision and intensity. Though the wine is sweet, the level of acidity keeps the wine fresh and lively, creating an incredible capacity for ageing, with bottles from the 1800s described as still drinking beautifully 100 years later.

A compelling reason to purchase Yquem on release is the opportunity to buy in alternative formats to the standard 75cl bottles. These are filled to order and so are always rare on the market once the wine is physical; if you would like to guarantee owning them in the size of your choice, now is the time.

2017 "Y" D'YQUEM

2017 "Y" d'Yquem (also known as Ygrec) - the luxury dry cuvée produced by the château which combines laser-like acidity with Sauternes' depth, spice and exoticism - has also been released by the château.

Notoriously rare – only around 10,000 bottles are produced each year – this is a wine of outstanding pedigree and real exclusivity.
