Throughout the centuries, Yquem has passed from the King of England to French nobility, down several generations as a most precious inheritance. Ranked the sole Premier Cru Supérieur wine from Sauternes in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855.
Yquem’s ability to craft renowned dessert wine stems largely from the site’s susceptibility to “noble rot.” The land is planted with 75% Semillon, which lends a structure and body to the final blend, and 25% Sauvignon Blanc, which contributes signature aromas for a more elegant finish.
