Château d'Yquem 1988

Yquem is indisputedly the best wine in Sauternes and may well be the finest sweet wine in the world. Meticulously made with incredible power, texture, complexity and ageing potential.

The most famous sweet wine in the world and the undisputed king of the Sauternes style, Yquem is an astonishingly luscious, powerful, sweet and yet refreshing wine which, in the best vintages, improves over many decades. Made in the most painstaking fashion imaginable, Yquem is rightly highly prized and worth every penny.
