2012 White Bordeaux

Learn more about 2012 White Bordeaux

The dry wines of the Graves (Pessac-Léognan) and, increasingly, the Médoc, were treated to lovely conditions. The warmth of the summer has removed the racy precision of 2011 and replaced it with a pulpeux dimension; a fleshy, juicy character.

Poor Sauternes never really got a chance to harvest. There was botrytis, but each wave of heavy rain during October washed away any possibility of a decent year. However, some pretty, if rather one-dimensional wines have been made, often from miniscule harvests. At Ch. Guiraud they got only an eye-watering 3.5 hl/ha. One should admire and support them for their persistence alone.
