Region 'Sauternes and Barsac' - Year 1974
|drink now||A poor vintage producing a few, lean wines|
Conditions in spring promoted a healthy flowering. Summer was hot and dry, but September saw the start of intermittent periods of heavy rainfall. The rainy, cold weather continued throughout the harvest period, which started early in October. The Sauternes crop was particularly badly affected by the conditions. The crucial autumn months were marred by steady rain and cool temperatures. A few wines were made, but they are lean and relatively characterless.
