Region 'Sauternes and Barsac' - Year 1970
|drink soon||Ripe, luscious wines but lacking complexity|
Climatic conditions were perfect - but not for the development of noble rot, which was inhibited by the long dry sunny autumn weather. Nonetheless many luscious wines were made, with masses of ripe fruit but little of the complexity that derives from botrytised grapes. But the wines remain fruity and enjoyable.
