Château d’Yquem launches crystalline and luminous 2020 vintage

Wines & Spirits


Every vintage of Château d’Yquem brings fresh delights, and the 2020 is no exception, with a delicate and ethereal personality that subtly balances freshness and solar aromatic notes.  

After uneven weather and challenging harvest conditions, crafting the 2020 vintage drew on the extensive ancestral winemaking expertise of the estate’s teams.  

Château d’Yquem 2020 has been premiered since February at exceptional fine dining establishments as part of the Lighthouse program, enabling more people to discover the experience, from aficionados to first-timers. 

Yquem is proposed by the glass before or during a meal with purposeful pairings at each of the 47 Lighthouses. These unique moments are a delectable discovery guided by sommeliers and chefs who are passionate about showcasing the bright possibilities of the 2020 vintage.   

“Château d’Yquem 2020 is a vintage of great finesse, endowed with a crystalline and luminous character,” says Pierre Lurton, Chief Executive Officer of Château d’Yquem.  

In conjunction with the launch of the new vintage, Château d’Yquem has unveiled a short film that epitomizes the burst of savors and emotional journey triggered by sharing a glass of Yquem.
