2010 Bordeaux En Primeur: Yquem
April 6, 2011
James visits Château Yquem on a cool, rainy morning last week to taste the 2010 from barrel with winemaker Sandrine Garbay, one of the few women enologists working for top name estates. She explains how 2010 was a challenging vintage, with various pickings over slightly more than one month, but the end result was something very excellent indeed. She thinks the quality of 2010 is close to 1988. See if James agrees. How sweet it is!
