This is a classic text on the world's most prestigious white wine, fully updated, with extensive tasting notes, recipes, and new photographs of the chateau, vineyards, and wine cellar. The mere mention of Chateaud Yquem and its signature sweet white wine evokes an image of unparalleled luxury, distinction, and enduring excellence. It embodies the luminous golden essence of the finest and rarest of wines. This legendary appellation is the result of centuries of painstaking cultivation of the vines, a unique vinification process, and the exceptional site, soil, and micro-climate, which combine with the notorious noble rot to create this peerless nectar.Yquem has recently undergone a renaissance: the chateau and its gardens have been restored, and its status as the world's greatest white wine has never been stronger. The rare nature of this fine wine, and its exceptional characteristic flavor, are honored in this fully updated volume, which includes Serena Sutcliffe's tasting notes from the November 200 Yquem vertical at Sothebys which spanned vintages from 1847 to 2003.
