Château d'Yquem

In 1993, Château d'Yquem celebrated 400 years of ownership by the same family. In 1593, the Sauvage family bought this estate which came into the Lur Saluces patrimony when Francoise Joséphine de Sauvage married Count Louis Amédée de Lur Saluces in 1785. Marquis Bertrand de Lur Saluces was one of the 20th century's most important personalities in the world of wine. Count Alexandre de Lur Saluces has followed in his Uncle Betrand's footsteps since 1968. Highly motivated to perfect this prestigious product while respecting tradition, he is determined to offer maximum quality. All those who love this inimitable wine, from Jefferson to Pamela Harriman, former U.S. Ambassador, by way of great Duke Constantine, have approved this philosophy from vintage to vintage. Yquem is the result of painstaking efforts by everyone who works on the estate.

Tasting Notes

With delicate scents of tangerine, yellow flowers and Mirabelle. The palate is well-balanced with a marmalade tinged opening.

Food Matches

Best with Foie Gras or a very rich blue cheese.
