About Château d'Yquem 1978
Bottle (75cl)

1978 was a particularly complicated vintage for the Sauternes appellation, as the weather was not damp enough for botrytis (noble rot) to develop properly on grapes.

But the Château d' Yquem, king of the wines of Sauternes, was able to face this situation by taking drastic measures and eliminating 85% of its harvest, saving what could be saved.
Thus, Château d' Yquem 1978 is undoubtedly the best wine of the AOC Sauternes.

Made from a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon, Château d' Yquem 1978 is dressed in a magnificent amber colour with warm reflections, Yquem 1978 offers a fleshy body, strong concentration and an above-average alcohol content.

On the palate, it is rich and honeyed. It brings a long and very persistent finish, but it does not reach the complexity of the best vintages produced.
