Yquem 2015: total perfection, better than 2001?

Dear Wine Lover,


Yquem 2015 is truly one of the best Yquem vintages ever! All wine critics have rated unanimously the wine with the maximum score, which almost never happens, and with extraordinary comments from the wine journalist. We have tasted the wine ourselves and we can guarantee this is a knockout and a must have for every wine cellar.


All critics have compared the 2015 to the legendary 2001 which today is selling at CHF 650 per bottle “This is a Yquem without a hair out of place: fantastically pure, botrytised fruit caressing the mouth” and “an astonishing Yquem that will rank alongside the 2001 and 2009”. These are only two comments from Neil Martin from Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, rewarding this new vintage with a stunning perfect score of 98-100 points, then rated with the perfect 100 points by Lisa Perrotti-Brown stating: “Truly, this is a legendary vintage for d'Yquem.”. Also James Suckling defined the 2015 d’Yquem vintage as “very close in greatness” to the 2001 vintage, giving to it the highest score of 99-100 points together with 2001. This Yquem 2015 could so become one of the greatest success in Château d’Yquem history!


Considering the wine is selling well bellow the price of its 2001, we think this is a very good buy. There is the chance to get also some large formats which will be impossible to find in the future.

Robert Parker 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 would not be at all surprised if our descendants are drinking this vintage well into the next century.

Rene Gabriel 20 Points: Mitteldunkles Gelb, somit recht intensiv, leuchtender Rand. Ein Cocktail von Mirabellen und Aprikosen, vermischt mit einer besonders vielschichtigen, feinpfeffrigen Botrytis zeigt sich im reichen Nasenbild. Im Gaumen ist er einerseits sehr frisch, aber auch opulent und unglaublich cremig. Dieser

Nektar ist so geschmeidig, dass man kaum glauben kann, dass es sich hier um eine Fassprobe handelt. Das Finale ist gebündelt und endlos lang. Der Restzuckergehalt beträgt 140 Gramm. Natürlich ist jeder Yquem ein Unikat. Wenn man Vergleiche anstellen müsste, so käme mit ein Blend der Jahrgänge 1990, 2001 und 2009 in den Sinn. 2025 – 2080.

Jean Marc Quarin 100 Points: Couleur dorée. Nez intense, fin, mûr et subtil. Bouche ample, fondante, offrant dès les premiers instants un toucher magique. Puis le vin fond, sculptural, gracieux vers une grande profondeur et une qualité de saveurs royale. Tenue et expression bouleversantes. Grande finale irrésistible et incrachable.

James Suckling 99-100 Points: This is an incredible young Yquem that is so vinous like a great vintage of Montrachet but then on the palate it turns to Yquem with spice, dried fruit and mushroom as well as sweet fruit. Last for minutes. Acidity is all there giving it a dynamic vibrance that jolts your senses. Special wine. It has a little more than than 140 grams of residual sugar, less than the legendary of 2001. But is very close in greatness. Let’s wait and see.
