Region 'Sauternes and Barsac' - Year 1980
|drink now||An under-rated vintage which produced a number of succulent wines|
An uneven growing season, with a poor spring, a cold damp July, and then hot weather in August. September was cool and wet, but then conditions improved in October, and some estates were still harvesting well into November. The wines are better than their reputation, and there is no lack of botrytis and succulence.
Rieussec, Raymond- Lafon.
