The first time since 1893 that 150 barriques were already filled with sweet grape juice in the cellar on 15 September. Start 6th September. 80% Semillon, 20% Sauvignon Blanc. Only 125 grams of residual sugar, which is rather little. Bright, shining yellow. Very fruity bouquet, lemon oil, mirabelle plums, freshly spun acacia honey, a beautifully packed sweetness. Creamy, juicy palate, very elegant, with a dancing balance, again lots of ripe yellow cooked fruit, apricot jelly, cooked Williams pears, somehow a "Sauternes-light" or a sweet Meursault. Either way, it will be a Yquem that you can drink with an aperitif and never tire of. Except for the question of budget. It cannot become a great Yquem, but a perfume of it. Quintessence: "Yquem -light!
