    Information about domain Château Nairac

    Nicolas Tari-Heeter, at the head of this estate since 1993, has brought this Barsac cru to the top of the Barsac wine hierarchy. This second cru classé in 1855 is located to the north of the appellation, less than 2 kilometres from the Garonne, which allows it to benefit perfectly from the humidity and autumn mists which are necessary for the development of botrytis. The vine varieties are largely dominated by Sémillon (90%)along with Sauvignon (6%) and Muscadelle (4%) and they are on average just over forty years old. Vinification is carried out in oak barrels (25% new), for 30 months.
