Chateau Nairac 1999
Chateau Nairac – Second Growth Barsac
Bill Blatch: Dark-coloured (it always was) and rich, this is a very very full-styled wine, all lushness and sweetness. Yet the orangey fruit flavours are totally beguiling as they peep through what you may dismiss as an uninteresting overweight wine if you don’t let it breathe and let the extremely high underlying acidity do its work of keeping it all together in a vibrant kind of balance. A fully mature wine that will go several more years if you like.
