Château d’Yquem's reputation has been built over 400 years, with a high point in 1855 when it was recognised as a Premier Cru Classé Supérieur in the official classification established by request of Emperor Napoleon III for the Paris Exposition Universelle. The only wine estate to have achieved this honour, Yquem sits unchallenged among the legendary great wines.
Château d’Yquem has around one hundred hectares in production, planted with 75% Semillon and 25% Sauvignon Blanc. The Ciron, a tributary of the Garonne River that is essential to the creation of Sauternes wines, provides an exceptional micro-climate for the vines on the estate. It is, in fact, thanks to the action of the autumnal morning mists, just before the harvest, which leads to the appearance of the Botrytis Cinerea “noble rot”. Other than the characteristics of the “terroir” and climate, Château d’Yquem's reputation also owes much to expertise and excellence. With a drastically limited yield, Château d’Yquem produces Sauternes wines made prestigious by their rarity.
