Y (pronounced “ee-grek” in French) is made from the same vines as the world famous Sauternes, Château d’Yquem, yet made in a different way. Perfectly ripe Sauvignon Blanc is harvested from especially selected vineyard plots, then blended with Sémillon grapes which have been partially affected by botrytis or ‘noble rot’. The wine is fermented until almost dry, then aged in barrels on yeast lees to gain richness and flavour.

The 2015 has fresh aromas of orange and lemon peel with hints of lemongrass and an intriguing saline quality. The palate is slightly off-dry with ginger toned citrus flavours and a touch of wax on the finish.

Pair with Asian fish dishes, shellfish and medium strength goat’s cheese.

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
