2012 chateau d'yquem, y, bordeaux
Why We're Buying
With more than 400 years of family winemaking history, Chateau d'Yquem is a titan of the industry. It's white Bordeaux blends routinely receive near-perfect ratings, with the 2013 vintage ranking in Wine Spectator's Top 100. Y is also one of five wines from Sauternes on the Liv-ex 1000 Index.
Still youthfully raw, but the tangerine, clementine, white peach, white ginger and lightly toasted brioche notes are all in place, and the long finish of macadamia nut and green almond has depth. This should be gorgeous given enough time.
