    Winemaker Notes

    This dry white wine is made from estate grapes not affected much by botrytis (if at all). It is not entitled to the appellation of Sauternes because it is dry. The Y label was first introduced with the 1959 vintage and to date has only been released in a total of 21 vintages: 1959, 1960, 1962, 1964, 1965, 1966, 1968, 1969, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1994, 1996, and 2000. Ygrec is one of the rarest and priciest dry white Bordeaux wines produced.

    2000 "Y" (pronounced Ygrec) Dry White, Bordeaux Supérieur. The color is light yellow with a hint of gold. On the nose the wine is reminiscent of sweet Sauternes with apricots, honey, mint, spices, oak, earthy-minerals, and mild peaches. The taste is dry and richly concentrated with peaches, apricots, pears, oak, bay leaf, spices, earthy-clay, and a solid backbone of acidity.

    Château d’Yquem is an extraordinary place, at the very heart of Sauternes, with a hundred hectares of vineyards are planted on a mosaic of different soils. All the conditions are there to grow exceptional grapes and achieve the finest noble rot, the famous botrytis cinerea.

    Through a sublimation process, the grapes reach a level a richness in taste and aromas that is simply unique in the world. Yquem preciously protects its selective harvesting secret, carried out by a team of devoted highly experienced local pickers, who have received their ancestral knowledge from the generations that came before them. Therefore, only the best grapes sublimated by botrytis cinerea are picked, because this is the golden rule at Yquem: never look for simplification, or shortcuts, and accept the risk of losing everything.

    This is the price to pay to achieve excellence.
