A great vintage in quality and quantity. The perfectly ripe Cabernet Sauvignon has resulted in wines of extraordinary concentration. Most of Medoc wines are full, detailed, aromatic and great guard. However, Pomerol, Saint-Emilion and Graves are increasingly inconsistent quality, Merlot has suffered torrential rains of summer. Favoured by an early harvest, dry white wines are beautiful and complex. Sweet wines are an uncommon wealth.
