100 /100 points

Following a very long harvest stretching nearly two months, the 2015 Château d'Yquem came in at 13.9% alcohol and 144 grams per liter of residual sugar, sporting a pH of 3.65 and six grams per liter of tartaric acid. None of these numbers, however, even remotely begin to tell you how profound this wine is. The nose opens with electric notes of ripe pineapples, green mango, orange blossoms and lemon tart with hints of fungi, lime zest, crushed rocks and jasmine. The freshness on the palate is just astonishing, permeating and lifting layer upon layer of tropical fruits and earthy notions, all encased in a sumptuous texture and culminating in a very, very long, mineral-tinged finish. Truly, this is a legendary vintage for d'Yquem. I've been conservative with my drinking window here, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if our descendants are drinking this vintage well into the next century.

About this wine

Château d'Yquem

Château d'Yquem is a famous wine producer located in the Bordeaux region of France. It is particularly known for its Sauternes wine, considered one of the world's finest dessert wines. The producer can be traced back to the 17th century, when the Lur-Saluces family played a decisive role in establishing it as a prestigious wine producer. In 1999, the Lur-Saluces family sold Château d'Yquem to the French luxury giant LVMH (Louis Vuitton Möet Hennessy), emphasising the estate's status as a luxury producer.


The dessert wine capital of the world, known for its golden amber-colored products, is a small wine region south of Bordeaux dedicated to dessert wine. The top producer is the well-known Château d'Yquem, which is in high demand.
