Tasting Notes

I suspect most readers will find it hard to get excited about the 2002 vintage for the sweet wines of Barsac and Sauternes after what appears to be a prodigious 2001. However, 2002 is a very fine year for this region, possibly superior to any of the vintages between 2000 and 1991. The wines possess plenty of botrytis, but neither the impressive definition nor supreme elegance of the 2001s. This is a sweet, full-bodied, fat, concentrated, intense effort that was showing well in September, 2003.

Score: 90/93Robert Parker, Wine Advocate (149), October 2003

Pale copper colour. Round, very sweet indeed but with sufficient freshness and zip. Excellent for a 2002. Satin texture and even a hint of botrytis on the nose. Very exciting and nervy.
