DESCRIPTION: Château d'Yquem wine is a " Premier Cru Supérieur " produced in Sauternes , a region that is located in the southern part of Bordeaux. In the official classification of Bordeaux wines of 1855 , Château d' Yquem was the only Sauternes to have this qualification . The grapes are harvested in the same way in Chateau d'Yquem for centuries. At harvest time , 140 people divided into four groups participating in the collection . Scour the entire vineyard in search of cibebas who have reached the highest concentration of sugar. As soon as they are harvested, the grapes are then transported quickly to the cellar where they are pressed several times. This is essential to fully extract the substances contained nell'acino . The alcoholic fermentation takes place naturally and lasts about 3-4 weeks at the end of which the wine will have a residual sugar of about 125 g / l. After fermentation, the wine is ready for a period of aging in new barrels . Every 3 months the wine is separated from the lees from the bottom of the barrel . The wine finishes the aging in oak barrels and is bottled in the fourth spring after the harvest. From the intense golden yellow color , the bouquet is incredibly fine , with hints of dried fruits ( dried apricot, plum, stewed fruit and jam) , spices (cinnamon , saffron and liquorice ) , and even the flowers ( linden flowers , etc.). . The first impression of Chateau d' Yquem is always very silky on the palate , and often sumptuous. Completely envelops the palate. This wine has a strong character , but never intrusive , with great elegance . It always maintains a balance between sugar and acidity (sweetness and freshness ) . A touch of bitterness can also contribute to the general harmony . In addition to traditional approaches such as foie gras and blue cheeses , blends wonderfully with seafood and shellfish and , likewise, is the fabulous wedding with some fish, such as turbot and sea bass . Serve at 6 ° - 8 ° C
