Château d'Yquem 2010

Bordeaux - Sauternes - White - 13.5° Château d'Yquem Château d'Yquem 2010 1082/10
  • Parker : 93
  • J. Robinson : 16.5++
In 1593, the Sauvage family acquired Château d'Yquem, which came into the Lur Saluces family when Francoise Joséphine de Sauvage married Count Louis Amédée de Lur Saluces in 1785. Count Alexandre de Lur Saluces perpetuated his family's tradition as manager of Château d'Yquem for more than 35 years. His efforts were guided by a single philosophy: an uncompromising approach to the highest quality, vintage after vintage. Thanks to his determination, this great wine's reputation reached new heights. All famous wine lovers, from Jefferson to Tognini, by way of Grand Duke Constantine of Russia, confirmed Yquem's greatness as the years went on. In May 2004, L.V.M.H. / Louis Vuitton - Moët Hennessy, main shareholders of Château d'Yquem since 1999, asked Pierre Lurton to take over management of the estate. Member of a famous Bordeaux wine family, this passionate winemaker and viticulturalist, who is also in charge of Château Cheval Blanc in Saint-Emilion and Cheval des Andes in Argentina, has all the necessary qualities to maintain Yquem's legendary reputation with a respect for tradition and an openness to modernity.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Served from an ex-chateau bottle. Consistent notes compared to the sample tasted blind at Southwold, the 2010 Chateau d'Yquem does not quite live up to the billing it showed out of barrel. Certainly it does not possess the concentration of the 2011, the elegance or the symmetry. However, there is fine minerality on the nose and great transparency. The palate is fresh and harmonious, with a fine bead of citrus fruit and a penetrating, spicy finish that offers white peach and honeysuckle notes, yet does not possess anything close to the peacock's tail of the magnificent 2009. Still, this is a fine Yquem. Drink 2017-2040+. Tasted March 2014.
