1968 Chateau d'Yquem - Stained Label - 750ml
The weather was cool and dry from May to August. September was twice as cold as usual and very wet. The grapes showed good concentration and picking went on daily starting on the 30th of September. However, ideal sugar levels was not reached until the 15th of October. Heavy rain on the 24th and 25th brought the harvest to a halt and a 4th pass was made just before All Saints' Day. Grapes picked in November were used to make Y. From beginning to end, the harvest necessitated 41 days of work. The fruit ended up being of very fine quality – thanks to the fact that over half was rejected during sorting.
