Chateau d'Yquem 1997 Premier Grand Cru Sauternes, Half Bottle (375mL)
Pricing includes standard shipping in the continental U.S.
When you acquire your first d'Yquem, you're entering the gilded age of wine drinking. Worth it's weight in liquid gold, Chateau d'Yquem has the Midas touch for Sauternes and has been the absolute icon for the French varietal for more than 400 years. The renowned house makes opulent and highly selective vintages only in years good enough to be cellared for future generations, and critics called the 1997 a particularly fine vintage: full-bodied and syrupy sweet with candied lemon and tropical fruit flavors. Open this nectar of the gods on your 5-year anniversary and experience its benevolent sorcery with a board full of stinky French cheeses and pates.
