This makes fois gras sink to it little chubby knees and open wide. In my mind the most exquisite dessert wine that have ever graced my tongue. I wanted to open wide for my sommelier.

My first wine I drink was a 57 Lafite Rothschild and I don´t like it at all, I was 15 years old. One year later my fathers brother who was maniac on Sauternes. I remember his wine cellar with all this sweet wines, a palett from bright yellow to dark brown colors. One day I was there with him for a helping hand, after the work, he ask me if want to try a wine. I said, I don´t like wine, he said, but you have not drink a Château d'Yquem the caramel of all caramels. He put up to huge glasses on a small table and 1 Vintage 1900. I was in trance, so sweet, so many flavors. I still remeber this wines i my head and for the first time in my life i get a little drunk. Château d'Yquem is one of best wine in the world. Try the 1990 is amazing wine.

The botrytis on this vintage is pristine and wrapped nicely around the apricots, pears, laurel and honey. Yquem's Sauternes are rare and highly coveted. Still considered young by most afficionados but just beginning to evolve. You could drink tonight or hold for years to come. Drink with a slight chill.

Wine Tasting NotesSubtle nose with hints of fruit tart the opens onto honey, dried apricot, and almond overtones. Very intense and powerful on the palate with loads of volume.

Tasted at the chateau. O.K. - I think this is better than the 1990! Intense hue. Brilliant expressive apricot/orangey nose with tonnes of botrytis. Unctuous and fat. Slightly lower in acidity than other vintages. Very concentrated with an incredibly intense finish. Tasted July 2001. Neal Martins Wine Journal.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sauternes is a tiny appellation, only about 2% of the Bordeaux vineyards, located 20 kilometres southeast of Bordeaux. It is difficult to understand with any certainty, due to the lack of written documents, what originally motivated winegrowers to let their grades "rot" on the vine to produce a different kind of wine. Apparently, late harvest wines already existed in the 16th and 17th centuries. This sort of wine became widespread in Sauternes in the 18th and 19th centuries due to the interest shown by connoisseurs such as Thomas Jefferson and Grand Duke Constantine, who induced winegrowers to wort their grapes in order to single out those most affected by "noble rot". Sauternes is different from other sweet wines for two reasons. First of all, Sauternes has a unique interplay of soil, topography, and microclimate which promotes the regular growth of Botrytis cinerea perhaps more than anywhere else. Second, the vineyards are harvested in several "waves" in order to pick only the most botrytised grapes each time. The wine starts out quite assertively on the palate with mineral flavours and a rich, complex flavour profile. Perfectly balanced, this wine's incredible complexity will become more accessible in a few more years' time.
