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.

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.
