Château d'Yquem 1955

Tasting notes

"(First wave of picking...with a good yield and very high sugar level. Very classic. 17 Sep to 28 Oct. 33 days of picking over 42 days.) Very dark copper. Rich almonds on the nose and with enormous richeness, and real life. Very long and gorgeous. Real gras and very long. Round and voluptuous."

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.
