Sauternes & Barsac

With so many mature back-vintages available on the market for little more than what was originally paid en primeur, I'm afraid it's hard to make a convincing case to buy in 2019 unless you are marking a special occasion like an anniversary or christening. Otherwise, it may be better to look through our current stock of back vintages on the Fine Wine List or contact the private client team via email if you would like something specific.

Please note that we can source wines in any format if offered by the Château. Just indicate which size you would like in your wishlist order form or email us with a specific request. Bottling charges do apply so please see our Terms for more details.

The palate is very well balanced, a little fatter than its aforementioned Barsac sibling, a welcome touch of spice (lemongrass and ginger) surfacing towards its satisfying conclusion. Good potential.
