2010 – “An Embarrassingly Good Vintage”

The title of my vintage report seems to have caught on in Bordeaux – Prince Robert of Luxembourg (and Chateau Haut Brion) advised me that it has become the phrase most used to describe the 2010’s.

We are now clear that in Sauternes – the wines are of consistent and excellent quality from the lesser wines right up to the First Growths.  Find out more from the videos below and by clicking on the links for individual wines where you will find tasting notes from myself and all of the top critics as well as prices for wines with a release date.  Bill Blatch
