Y (Ygrec)

Dry white wine from Château d'Yquem made from normal grapes that have not been attacked by noble rot. It may only be marketed as "Bordeaux Supérieur". The name is pronounced "Ygrec" (French for Ypsilon). It only exists in years with little botrytis, but despite its rarity it is not one of the great wines.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
