2017 Chateau d’Yquem "Y” Dry Blanc Bordeaux
In what was a very early-ripening year, Y broke all previous records, with picking starting on the 16th of August. This extremely early start was essential to retain the precious and fragile acidity indispensable for Y's freshness. The harvest went very quickly since even the Sémillon grapes were ripe. The end of the picking and sorting of bunches used to make Yquem's dry wine ended on the 25th of August. An elegant, magnificently aromatic wine.
James Suckling - "This is an exotic dry white with dried mango and pineapple and some slate throughout. Full-bodied with dense, rich fruit and saltiness, which, together with extremely energetic acidity, really drive the finish. Drink now or hold."
Wine Spectator - "White peach and lemon peel notes mingle out front in this slightly exotic and very seductive white. A flash of shortbread caresses the finish, allowing white ginger and yellow apple notes to glide in for added range and length. Everything ripples, with finely beaded acidity. Beautiful and distinctive."
