1995 vintage guide for Sauternes and Barsac


A classic vintage with many very fine wines

Weather Conditions

The winter was mild, the spring warm and dry, as was the summer. There was rain in September and botrytis spread rapidly from around 20 September; thereafter the harvest proceeded rapidly. Some picking were greatly inferior to others, so selection was essential. Many very good wines, but some lack botrytis character.
