2001 Bordeaux was perfect for the great, sweet, white wines of Bordeaux. Numerous chateaux produced compelling wines. In fact the vintage is so good in Sauternes, you could throw darts at a board to pick  a wine to buy and chances are, it’s going to be a delicious treat.  The wines are rich, concentrated, sweet and offer the perfect amount of acidity to give them lift, or freshness.
