A vintage too often overshadowed by his younger brother a year. The Medoc was a beautiful summer. Fearing the onset of rot or late rains, some properties have anticipated the harvest in recoltant Cabernet Sauvignon too soon. The areas that have avoided this pitfall in the Margaux appellation, in particular, recorded great successes. Colorful, powerful and extremely tannic, great wines of northern Medoc are distinguished by a great aging potential. Harvest ripe, Pomerol and Saint-Emilion show of great wealth. The Graves appellation is probably the one that has produced the finest wines. The dry whites are rich and perfectly balanced. For sweet, it is one of the great vintages of the century. In a unique aromatic power, Sauternes are wonderful richness and concentration.
