White wine

Château d'Yquem, Château d’Yquem 1934

RRP £2,466.70

Nearing its century, it is the colour of polished copper, the palate with a sublime heft of acidity to hold its caramel and orange-flower flavours. What a gorgeous wine, like all great Sauternes a study in contrasts – salinity and sweetness, voluptuousness and acidity.
