Château d'Yquem 1985 - magnum (1.5 l)

Tasting notes

"The 1985 Yquem is a very powerful, rich, exceptionally concentrated wine. Yet because of the lack of botrytis in the vineyards during this hot, dry vintage, the wine does not have the complexity so frequently encountered. Nevertheless, this massive, unctuous, light golden-colored Yquem makes quite a mouthful of wine given the honeyed flavors."

The Yquem estate comprises 188 hectares, of which 110 are planted to vines and 105 are generally in production.

Only the portion of the harvest judged to be perfect is bottled under the Château d'Yquem label, and in certain years the entire harvest may be declassified. This was the case, for example, in 1964, 1972, 1974, 1992 and recently in 2012.

In certain years, Château d'Yquem produces a small amount of dry white wine composed of 50 % Sauvignon and 50 % Sémillion: Y, whose bouquet and power make it stand out among the white wines of Bordeaux.

Production 100'000 bottles ;

Surface 105 ha ;

Wine variety 80 % sémillon, 20 % sauvignon;

Best vintages 2009, 2007, 2001, 1990, 1988, 1986, 1975, 1945, 1847, 1811.
