Sauternes, Oysters and Sausages
Here’s another two little videos I filmed after the ‘oak’ video (see previous post below).
I was curious to see how the ‘oaked’ and ‘unoaked’ wines would go with my homespun supper of fresh oysters from the Sunday market in Bordeaux and some sizzling sausages!
In case you think we’re a little crazy not showing you a video of Sauternes with Foie Gras or Roquefort here’s a picture of a large tray of oysters in the tasting room at Chateau d’Yquem – slightly more elegant than me eating them out of the carrier bag but proof that the Sauternais themselves think the same way! The point is that, whilst the classic combinations are good, there are many others to try – Sauternes is the most versatile of wines for accompanying food.
