Tasting Notes

The 2012, made from 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Semillon, was the only wine made by d’Yquem in the vintage.
The team picked and started to make a Sauternes but Garbay said ‘after the first tasting we decided the quality was not enough to make d’Yquem’.
The Y grapes are picked before the Sauternes grapes with only a little botrytis on. This gives the wine a unique aroma and palate, Lurton said. ‘It’s not the typical Bordeaux white, it’s closer to Alsace white wines,’ he added, pausing for thought before concluding, ‘it’s unique’.
