    The Ygrec, or “Y” from Château d’Yquem is a curiosity – a dry white wine from what is perhaps the most famous producer of sweet wines in the world. Admittedly, it’s a bit of an upstart. The history of Yquem goes back over four and a quarter centuries while the first vintage of the “Y” was barely fifty years ago. The dry white represents about 10% of the estate’s total production annually. The blend is typically about three quarters Sauvignon Blanc to one quarter Sémillon. The Sauvignon grapes are among the earliest picked to preserve acidity, the Semillon from among the last so that a botrytis element is always present in the wine. It is unlike any other dry white Bordeaux. The 2016 vintage is a masterwork of precision and balance, lively and refreshing with superb tension yet with a richness, even opulence that belies its weight. Not an inexpensive wine, but a unique expression of the terroir that more than merits your attention.
