Futures 2015: Appellation Barsac

Futures 2015: Appellation Barsac

Barsac is located within the larger Sauternes region. Like its neighbor, Barsac makes delicious sweet dessert wines. The wines from this 460-hectare AOC are made from sémillon, sauvignon blanc and muscadelle, and grown on clay limestone soils with pockets of gravel and sand. The low-lying lands are perfect for the development of Noble Rot, or Botrytis Cinerea. When this fungus attacks the grapes, much of the water is removed, and the remaining juice is richly sweet and concentrated.

Barsac also have strict production laws. Yields must be low, and winegrowers instead focus on creating wines that are aromatically concentrated, rich and elegant.

2015 in Barsac:

Spotlight on the 2015 vintage: 2015 in Bordeaux started with an unusually mild spring. May, June and July subsequently were warm and dry, allowing the vines to grow rapidly. An even and consistent véraison occurred in early August. Autumn saw cooler, damp weather, helping build aromatic complexity and power in the grapes before harvest. The highly-anticipated vintage promises to be one for the ages.
