Y is a Bordeaux Dry White from Château d’Yquem. The vines are planted on clay soil. The 2016 vintage was noted for its hot and dry summer, but the vines were able to survive due to their water reserves. The flowering was late, but the harvest still began on September 5 and finished on September 13 just before the heavy rains fell throughout the region. This year, the Sémillons were as early as the Sauvignons. The ageing was done on lees in barrels (80% in barrels with Yquem wine and 20% new) with regular stirring. The 2016 Yquem Y blend is composed of 75% Sauvignon Blanc and 25% Sémillon.
Y d'Yquem 2016 develops seductive fruit scents, mixing lemon, grapefruit and white peach. There are also oaky notes due to ageing. On the palate, the wine had a great tension that matches in scale to its formidable length.
