K&L Notes

Clive Coates: "In 1981, a new and, moreover, foreign 'enfant terrible' arrived on the Sauternes scene, the Canadian Hamilton Narby. Narby was determined to seize the sleepy Sauternais by the scruff of their collective neck, restore some of the glory to the reputation of this superlative sweet wine, and reintroduce a fashion for drinking it regularly. The world, we felt when we first met him, would hear of Sauternes whether it liked it or not, and if, in the process of shaking up the apathy for promoting Sauternes, a few local toes get trodden on, well perhaps, 'tant pis'....Two years later the provident arrival of a superb 1983 vintage enabled prices to rise to more realistic economic levels. Nineteen eighty five was not bad at all, and this was followed by excellent vintages in 1986,1988 and 1990. All of which were rapidly taken up. Sauternes has become news." (Grand Vins: The Finest Château of Bordeaux and Their Wines, pg 560)
