2010 Chateau d’Yquem

The final piece of the 2010 Sauternes jigsaw is released today – Chateau d’Yquem!  I must say I like the style of the  2010 and it’s similarities with the sensational 1988.

The price, for d’Yquem, is reasonable too – I am delighted that they appear to have followed the lead of the other Sauternais by reducing their price (by some 22%) rather than following the 1st growth red wines which they have done in the past.  As predicted here and elsewhere it looks like Yquem is set to become the next big thing in China so this might be a good opportunity to secure a first class example of the very best Sauternes can offer at at this price level.

2010 Chateau d’Yquem – Case (bottles) at £4,911

2010 Chateau d’Yquem – Case (halves) at £4,927

2010 Chateau d’Yquem – Half Bottle at £206.04

If you are interested in part cases of 2010 Chateau d’Yquem (e.g. 6 Bottles or even 6 Half Bottles) do email us and we will quote.  Enjoy!  Bill Blatch

    Sorry if I’ve missed this elsewhere but why have prices come down this year in Sauternes, I wonder?

    Also, and again this may have been mentioned elsewhere, but what are the pros and cons of 375 vs 750 bottles as far as Sauternes is concerned- does aging occur differently, as with reds?

    Thanks a lot.

    Supply and demand rules apply for prices. We have had good or great years ever since 1995 (an incredible and unique run of vintages) and there is plenty of good older Sauternes to be found at reasonable prices.

    The main advantage for a half bottle is convenience. Personally I prefer bottles as they do age slower and, in my opinion, better. You can also keep open bottles in the fridge for several weeks.
