1994 vintage guide for Sauternes and Barsac

drink soon

An indifferent vintage of irregular quality

Weather Conditions

There was some frost damage in Barsac in April, but flowering was normal. By September the grapes looked promising, but rain from 15 to 24 September wrecked hopes of a great vintage: there as grey rot, mould, and dilution. Fine weather returned on 5 October. Some good wines made, but the vintage remains very patchy.
