And in Sauternes village head from Bordeaux through the line N 113, go., through there, and Hill is approximately 80 metres above sea level. It is a magnificent Chateaux gather level 1 Chateau on a small hillside, located in the top part only "first class special class" in Sauternes Chateau yquem （ or ischemic ）.
vast vineyards 115 ha of hills composed of gravel carried by low-permeability clay and the Garonne River. Groves is covered on thin sand layer mixed gravel topsoil is. But many gravel for a vast field, topsoil, gravel without almost field, such as sand, clay at the bottom of exposed topsoil and place the aspect depends on.
Which fields, and differences in the nature of the soil, the difference is more apparent in DICOM. Because of this, being harvested grape quality and characteristics are different, becomes the complex flavors and aromas to wine.
Also today, the distance is approximately 100 km covers and is a well-known story, but to the vines of yquem, from as early as the 19th extra drainage pipe. Is a DICOM fields are originally bad drainage this clay Hill grape root growth is bad because wastewater treatment is necessary.
Usually, noble-putrefaction of the whole grape, not the beginning part by part, so grapes harvested bunch each without cut only for noble-putrefaction, harvest the same bunch that. But inevitably end up mingled with grape sugar content not banged up completely. Because of this, less sugar as a whole. Hated it in the Chateau, especially at harvest time to rain, shed the sugar may also be harvested only regarding if a perfectly noble-putrefaction of grain. This is very tedious, and hard work. Potential alcohol content reaches 20 degrees will start harvesting.
Grapes are divided in the days from being harvested and taken to the brewery within one hour, harvested and may blend in Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc in the targeted phase.
Dike in ever never never chaptalization "that is in, it is proud of the Chateau. Lowered the temperature fruit juice has been moved to the underground tank as fermentation does not begin with the overnight leave are laid. The next day, skim just put in new oak barrels, raising the room temperature, lets start the alcoholic fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation is 2 to 6 weeks and is widely, this is since the only natural yeasts in fermentation. Was deemed completed alcoholic fermentation is natural and is transferred into stainless steel tanks at 4 ° c, must not again begin fermentation in the barrel is also returned.
DICOM has been graded "first class special class" only is by our dedication to quality has maintained its reputation.
Robert Parker Jr. " Bordeaux, 4th Edition "
On the top of a small hill overlooking the vineyards located in the heart of the Sauternes district, surrounded by plenty of first class Chateau Grand spread. From 1785 until 1997, this Chateau is even owned by the clan. Count Alexandre de Lulu サリュース at the newest member of the clan Chief of the vast Chateau in, took over from his uncle in 1968. In 1997, this Château was sold a huge conglomerate, Moët-Hennessy, but without established by rule サリュース Earl objection this sale, still his management people.
ICOM's greatness and uniqueness of several factors; The first is a perfect location with its own micro-climate. Secondly, home rule サリュース set up elaborate drainage systems with 97 kilometres of pipe. Third, economic losses and trouble without untrue has, also said that a fanatical obsession to produce only high-quality wines. Is this last factor is biggest reason why so much better compared to nearby fields.
In the dike, built only from the vines of one glass of wine only. Ikem and stay from 6 weeks 8 weeks, waiting for the Group of some 150 people around the vineyards picking the grapes to mature perfectly at least four times a grain is picked. The harvested grapes are considered unsuitable for picking hand who has his back field 13 times, but in 1964, the, eventually did not produce this vintage. Wine-making little so far in the Chateau has a whole harvest voluntarily turn the discount wine, or where it is economically feasible.
DICOM has matured an incredible potential. ICOM wine is too rich, plump and sweet, and many are always 10th birthday before end up drunk. But to ICOM's best drink to be 15 years from 20 years of need, and even after 50 years, or 75 years or over is a great vintage continues with full-bodied, fresh, decadent. A great ICOM that you drank before I was in 1921. Will not be lively and surprisingly fresh, never forget that luxury and richness.
Passion for these qualities are not confined to the field. Aged wine over 3 years in new oak barrels, 20% of the total yield loss due to evaporation. Screened strictly from kegs, where rule サリュース Earl can be bottled wine of the best. In 1975, 1976, featured in 1980 and 20 percent of the barrels were eliminated. In the difficult year of 1979, 60% of the wines have been taken off. Out of hand like the 1978 vintage, was judged not suitable for 85% of the wine sold as ICAM. The Chateau has taken this heartless triage process as far as I know, the other not. DICOM lose its fullness of even a little afraid, never without a filtration process.
DICOM is also building called Y and dry wine. This is a featured wine in, have apparently DICOM bouquet, oaky taste is dry, generally are quite distinct, full-bodied, high alcohol content, powerful wine, served with my tongue, like the foie gras flavor food is best at.
DICOM is unlike other famous Bordeaux wines never sold by the プリムール, i.e. the futures. After four years of its vintage in shipped at very high prices, is one of the very few luxury price wine deserves the best price tag considering the spent effort, risk, and a rigorous selection process, is this wine.
DICOM in Bordeaux two and could argue that not a great wine, truth is compelling.

| Minimal amount of the pinnacle of botrytised wines of the world "Chateau yquem' in stock!
Robert Parker, "one of the very few fine wine deserves the best price tag considering the effort, risk, and a rigorous selection process,. "With admiration.
In the rating of Sauternes only ranked "1er Cru Sprewell'.
There is 3 large botrytised wine world. It is needless to say not the grape which Sauternes of France, Germany, Hungary's Tokaj essence 3.
While France Bordeaux and Sauternes wine ratings and the reigns supreme, the largest of this ischemic. The absolute rating, who disagree is not an absolute is universal.
Only elected special 1st grade and is comparable to the ischemic white wine is called Burgundy male "Montrachet" about.
Standards in respect of quality not built only a glass of wine from the grape tree picks to rectitude are not produced without mercy in less than the Golden shine, this drop is really Golden drink It is itself.
People who run Chateau splendor of the dike is also terroir with unparalleled in other ミクロクリマ, of course, but uncompromising harshness, even Suitable for DICOM DICOM Just what is not 造りだそう and hot passion and pursue greater.
Chateau is also deemed unworthy to harvest only the grapes fully ripe, usually 6-8 weeks, at least 150 people-picking hand into 4 times and wines made from carefully selected grapes even on barrel maturation stage as a dike to put out in reducing the production of trim mercilessly.
This wine has been amazing lovers but because of the long life.
Robert Parker said drink last for 10-100 years after the harvest And its ageing potential is immeasurable. Outspoken DICOM Y (ygrec) are lovers salivating products.
