Chateau Nairac – Second Growth Barsac
Bill Blatch: Through its balancing high acidity, this is one of my favourites of the vintage : hopelessly sweet but at the same time, tangy and tensile. It delivers one hell of a mouthful but also a great sensation of harmony. Fine to drink it now but will keep.
