Dear Wine Lover,
We managed to get our hands on the newly released Y dYquem 2016. The highly respected Wine Magazine Wine Spectator gave it the highest rating in history with 96 Points making it the best dry white wine Château dYquem ever produced! Not only, this is also the highest rated white wine Wine Spectator tasted until now for the entire Bordeaux 2016 vintage making it without any doubt the king of Bordeauxs whites in this vintage.
As you already know the production is very limited, in 2016 they only made 833 cases and we have only 120 bottles and very few and rare big formats available. We would need quick feedback if interested as all our colleagues are working on this small parcel.
The 2016 was one of the best vintages in the last five years for the balance of acidity for white wine in Bordeaux. And this Y dYquem is probably the best example of all:
75.0 cl Ygrec de Ch. d'Yquem - Château d'Yquem - Bordeaux 2016 CHF 145.00 (CHF 156.15 Vat incl.)
For 12 bottles CHF 143.00 (CHF 154.00 Vat incl.)
For 36 bottles CHF 140.00 (CHF 150.80 Vat incl.)
Few Magnums at CHF 300.00 (CHF 323.10 Vat incl.)
Ultra rare Double Magnums at CHF 650.00 (CHF 700.05 Vat incl.)Wine Spectator 96: Rather rich, with coconut, green fig, creamed pear, yellow apple and jasmine notes all melded together, picking up light acacia and elderflower accents on the finish. Very, very showy, with the underlying cut to pull it off. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Best from 2019 through 2026. 833 cases made.
