Rating Drinkability Style
starstarstarstarstar drink now A few acceptable wines but most properties were plagued by rain at vintage time

Weather Conditions

A mild, wet winter led into a warm spring. Summer continued hot and dry, resulting in thedevelopment of a well-ripened crop by mid-September. The harvest started well, but the latter part of it was badly affected by the heavy rains that fell without respite for a fortnight. The timing of the rains completely ruined the Sauternes harvest.
