How does one drink dessert wine?
Sweet wines, such as Yquem, are typically served in smaller glasses and often paired with dessert. But not always. Food and beverage pairing is an art in and of itself. A classic pairing suggestion recommends enjoying a Sauternes style wine with Foie Gras as the lush wine is a great match for the rich and buttery delicacy. Other suggested pairings include:
- Match Yquem with Mediterranean cuisine
- Enjoy with blue cheeses or an old Comté cheese
- Try with quail, duck, or other poultry
So now you know what to expect and how to best enjoy a glass of Yquem. Why not try some for yourself – claim one of the two bottles (…or why not both?) of Chateau d’Yquem – Vintage 1928 in our upcoming Fine Wine Auction
"...after hearing Mozart, the ensuing silence is still Mozart. After a sip of Yquem, the moments that follow are still Yquem"
