1986 Château d'Yquem Sauternes

Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) There is a lovely purity to the fruit and clear botrytis concentration, if less than in the great years. Has all the hallmarks of a fine, elegant Yquem. A very polished, well-presented sample.

Winemaker's Notes

Nestled in the southeasy of Bordeaux, Château d’Yquem is the world’s most sought after dessert wine – the benchmark by which all other dessert wines are judged.

Expert Reviews
  • Decanter
    Rating: 0/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Medium straw; inexpressive nose, some botrytis; medium-bodied, reasonable concentration, quite oaky, modest botrytis, lacks some vigour and verve, almost raisiny on finish, disappointing for Yquem
