Chateau d'Yquem Degustation

Serious wine lovers rejoice in this lush degustation at Union Square in honour of the world’s most famous and exclusive dessert wine. Production of this wine is a labour of love with each grape individually handpicked when the botrytis (noble rot) has set in, and limited productions make Château d’Yquem liquid gold. Indulge in five-courses including crayfish ravioli with caper beurre noisette, Roquefort Gougére with candied walnuts and Pinot Noir reduction, and apricot tarte Tatin with whipped crème fraiche. Each course is matched with wine. Exceptional value and not to be missed.
