Vintage Description

A great vintage. Ideal weather conditions and a month of sunny dry September and favored the development of dense and colored wines. Acueillis enthusiastically right out, the wines evolved unexpectedly. Some wines have lost their fruity and prove today austere, unsophisticated and very tannic. However, note stunning successes as Latour, Leoville Las Cases or Mission Haut-Brion are now dazzling charm and balance. Sweet wines are average, the weather conditions have not been favorable to the formation of noble rot.
