With the wines matured in 100% new oak barrels, Nairac is all about the harmony between oak and fruit. This doesn’t happen overnight so age is a vital component to understanding these Sauternes. The 1996 is at the peak of its drinking window and will offer a wonderful insight into the rich, bold and complex layers this chateau can produce.
This is mature and classic Sauternes.
We rate this as just as good as the 1997, which is twice the price but it’s up to you.
1996 was a very good, long-lasting vintage in Bordeaux
