Yquem 2018 with a portrait of Honore de Balzac

The world’s most famous sweet wine was launched two days ago.

YQUEM 2018 has been released at €225 per bottle by Bordeaux negociants to the international wine trade.

The 2018 vintage suffered a drop of around 40% normal production when a devastating hailstorm in July that year hit the south-western part of Sauternes.

Mildew between May and July also lowered the crop in 2018.

Quality is expected to be exceptional.

We received our sample – a few days ago – which is presently being rested.

We will offer our tasting notes next week.
