Region 'Sauternes and Barsac' - Year 1962
|drink soon||Elegant, harmonious wines still drinking well|
Conditions were cold and rainy from winter onwards right through to the end of May. June's good weather developed into an extremely hot summer, although a reasaonable degree of rainfall prevented drought from developing. Good weather continued thoughout the harvest, which began on the 1st of October.
Sauternes: the wines were more harmonious than in '61, rich and with lovely fruit flavours.
Sauternes: Yquem and Suduiraut are outstanding, Climens and Coutet are classics.
