In December of 1593, Jacques de Sauvage exchanged lands that he owned with the French monarchy for a small estate in the Bordeaux region of France that would become known Château d'Yquem. In 1711, the estate became fully owned by Léon de Sauvage d'Yquem, who began using the property as a vineyard. Château d'Yquem's gentle hills and soils of gravel, limestone and clay, along with its maritime climate (the estate is situated on the south bank of the river Garron), make it ideal for producing intense grapes that can result in long lasting, sweet wines. Château d'Yquem 2008 Sauternes began by harvesting grapes after a year of capricious weather. After the grapes were harvested and pressed using a process called cryoextraction, they were fermented in new, French oak barrels. Following fermentation, the wine was allowed to mature for for approximately three years in new oak casks. As a result, the wine is incredibly well balanced, with touches of fresh fruit and an intense, golden color. Notes of spiced apricots, poached pears, and caramel dominate the palate, and lead to a long and sweet finish accented by hints of citrus.
