Y de Château d'Yquem 2020
21 September 2021

The release of Yquem 2019 has been delayed until March 2022. In the meantime, the Château has offered their latest incarnation of Y. For those not au fait with this project, this is Yquem’s dry white wine, produced from early harvested Sauvignon and Semillon grapes. The quality and precision of this cuvee has improved dramatically over the last decade. We run the risk of repeating ourselves yet again… we believe the 2020 is possibly the finest example to date. There’s a real sense of reserve and a deep minerality here. Away with any exoticism, the 2020 is all about cool, chalky minerals, grassy aromas and savoury notes, then intense limes and a wonderful lingering salinity. This is very focussed and precise, all tension and nerve, a most impressive and complex adaptation of Y.

“It has a pretty serious structure, deftly weighted, full of white pear, quince and apricot pit, balanced by savoury rosemary, straw and fennel notes, successful and totally moreish. A vintage that had the freshness necessary for great white wines in Bordeaux, and Y pulls away from the pack with this wine”. 97/100 Jane Anson, Inside Bordeaux
