Region 'Sauternes and Barsac' - Year 1987

Rating Drinkability Style
starstarstarstarstar drink now A small vintage of light, short-lived wines

Weather Conditions

A particularly long, cold winter that dragged on well into spring, adversely affecting the flowering. July and August were both cool and there was little sunshine. September was very hot, but the rains set in towards the end of the month, affecting the harvest. The weather conditions resulted in a marginally more successful white vintage, but this is still not an exceptional year. Botrytis was sporadic, and overall the wines are light and pretty, but not for long ageing.
