    THE STORY: For centuries Y'quem has been unchallenged as the finest example of Sauternes and the most famous sweet wine in the world. The estate's history dates to 1593, and since 1855, Yquem has existed literally in a class of its own -- the only wine from Sauternes and Barsac labeled a Premier Cru Supérieur. In the Lur Saluces family for centuries, it was purchased by LVMH in 1999, ending a three century stewardship and the end of an era.
