In the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, Château d'Yquem was the only Sauternes given this rating, indicating its perceived superiority and higher prices over all other wines of its type. Yquem's success stems largely from the site's susceptibility to attack by "noble rot" (Botrytis cinerea).
Brilliant yellow.
Pure hints of candied fruit.
The palate has a marked refinement, voluptuousness and alluring freshness.
