An exceptional vintage in quality and quantity. Second warmest year of the century after 1947, and sunniest after 1949. Most castles were harvested grapes of exceptional concentration. Because of the volume of the harvest, the wines are slightly acidic but equipped with powerful and velvety tannins. The best wines come from vineyards located on heavy soils (Saint-Estephe, Saint-Emilion) and properties having practiced draconian selection to limit yields. In general, the wines of this vintage are models of charm and distinction. The dry whites are grandiose, including Haut Brion and Laville Haut-Brion, which are emerging as wine legends. For Sauternes, harvested before red, this is an historical vintage. Powerful and complex, they represent absolute masterpieces of concentration and richness.
