95/100 Wine Advocate, R. Paker: "Medium lemon-gold colored, the 2006 d'Yquem is a little reticent at this stage, slowly revealing notes of pineapple pastry, dried apple slices, orange preserves and spice cake plus nuances of crème brûlée, preserved ginger, nutmeg and baking bread. The palate offers mouth-coating tropical fruit and baking spice layers with a seductive oiliness to the texture and loads of citrus sparks, finishing with bold freshness and amazing length. Allow it just a couple more years in bottle to get over this slightly muted hump, then drink it for the next 25+ years. "19/20 Guide Vert RVF; 19/20 Bettane & Desseauve; 95/100 Stephen Tanzer; 19/20 Jancis Robinson

Château d'Yquem, a mythical wine, is the only Sauternes 1er Cru Supérieur in the 1855 classification. It has become the ultimate reference for sweet wines due to the unique quality of its wines. The vineyard covers 103 hectares and enjoys an ideal exposure and a terroir made up of large gravelly pebbles on the surface, laid on a clay subsoil. The average age of the vines is 35 years. The density of plantation is 6,700 vines per hectare, with a yield of one glass per vineyard unit!


The harvest requires 5 to 6 selections, spread over 6 to 10 weeks. After pressing and fermentation, a long period in 100% new barrels begins. Each day's harvest is aged separately for 6 to 8 months. The following spring, a pre-assembly is carried out. The wine is put into barrels during the 4th spring following the harvest after a light fining. The bts are closed with a 54mm cork, a guarantee of long ageing.
