2010 Sauternes – Harvest Party at Chateau Guiraud

A 2010 Sauternes Harvest Party – what fun!  Everyone at Chateau Guiraud was in high spirits when I popped in a couple of days ago including the inimitable Xavier Planty.  And why not?  It seems like another fantastic vintage for Sauternes – very different to the 2009 and it will be fascinating to compare them over the next few years.  In the video below I join in the party for a while and then manage to drag Xavier away to talk in his cellars about just why this is looking like another very special year.

Next up I shot some vineyard videos (I’ve never seen such colour on the vines) followed by trips to Chateau Coutet, Chateau Suduiraut, Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Domaine de l’Alliance and finally Chateau Climens.  It’ll take Steve a few days to process the videos and get them up here but together they tell the story of the 2010 harvest, and quite an epic it was!  Bill Blatch
