Chateau d’Yquem 2007 Sauternes

    The only estate to be awarded the Premier Cru Supérieur designation in the Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855, this Sauternes, which is composed primarily of Sémillon, became famous for using grapes affected with Botrytis cinerea, or noble rot, in its winemaking. With the potential to age up to a century, the 2007 vintage has glorious flavors of hazelnut and crème brûlée enhanced by a wisp of nutmeg. Drinking this Sauternes can only be compared to sipping pure sunlight.
