Barsac Wine

The châteaux below make some of the best Barsac wine. The classification of Bordeaux Sauternes châteaux in 1855 is a good starting point but there are some unclassified wines in this list producing high quality Barsac.

Barsac wine tends to be lighter in style with more pronounced acidity than neighbouring Sauternes wine as a result of the limestone subsoils in the commune. 

Barsac is a white Bordeaux wine.  It is of course sweet but this is balanced by a refreshing acidity allowing the drinker to taste the amazing complexity of the wine – a direct result of the effect of Botrytis Cinerea or ‘Noble Rot’ which concentrates by up to 100 times the flavours within the grapes.
