Vintage description 1962 Bordeaux

An outstanding vintage, overshadowed by its predecessor. The favourable weather conditions resulted in soft and fruity wines, very pleasant in their youth. They also have a cellaring capacity that at the time was not fully anticipated. Most of the appellations made wines that are characterised by elegant fruity undertones with discrete tannins. The dry white wines are excellent. The autumn was very favourable for Sauternes. The wines are sweet, fruity and perfectly-balanced.
