Yquem Will Not Produce 2012 Sauternes

December 19, 2012

Pierre Lurton, managing director of Ch√Ęteau d'Yquem, said that the legendary 250-acre Bordeaux estate will not produce a 2012 Sauternes due to insufficient quality. "We tried everything possible, but nature didn't give us a choice," Lurton told Wine Spectator.
