Dry White Wines

Conditions were perfectly suited to the production of dry white wines: the cool weather in August preserved the acidity which is so important to maintain the fresh, zesty character of these wines, while the burst of September heat ripened the grapes beautifully. The wines are concentrated, aromatic, beautifully structured and as exciting as we have seen for many years.

Sauternes

Not quite such good news for the sweeter white wines however. A first trie during the early September fine weather was mostly to clean out inappropriate grey rot, though various subsequent pickings through to early October yielded some good pourriture noble. Overall however the wines tasted en primeur do not show the exceptional qualities of 2001, 2003 and 2005.
