Chateau d’Yquem’s winemaker Sandrine Garbay on vintages [E] – BKWine TV

Chateau d’Yquem is the biggest vineyard in Sauternes with its 100 ha. Since a few years back the winemaking is under the responsibility of Sandrine Garbay. When BKWine was there recently we took the occasion to make an interview with Sandrine and we have now published the two short videos on BKWine TV. Watch them here: On the first clip Sandrine Garbay talks about Yquem, the vineyard and her role as winemaker, and on the second Sandrine Garbay talks about the taste of Yquem and how the wine evolves with aging.

This is Part 2

Sandrine Garbay, cellar master and winemaker at Chateau d Yquem, comments on how a Chateau d’Yquem change in taste as it ages.

She starts from young vintages just after bottling and talks about how the taste evolves to more complex flavours with age, all while we are tasting the 1998 vintage. When young the wine is very much on the fruit and exotic aromas. With age it evolves more to dried fruit and marmalade. Even older it turns towards coffee, caramel, toast, roasted aromas… Enjoy!

Also some peeks on the vintages 1989, 1982, 1967, 1945, 1937, 1929, 1921, 1893. . . One can always dream!

Chateau d’Yquem is located in Sauternes in Bordeaux and is one of the worlds most expensive sweet white wines, in fact simply one of the worlds most exclusive wines over all. Yquem is the biggest property in all of Sauternes having 100 hectares. The size adds complexity and depth to the wine.

Dont miss the first video on Chateau dYquem where Sandrine Garbay talks about the chateau, her own background, the estate and about how to match and pair sauternes, and Yquem in particular, with food.
