2010 Sauternes – Top of the Pops

As you know we don’t score wines but, just for fun, here’s an interim Top 30 of how the 2010 Sauternes are impressing the critics so far (2009 positions are in brackets).  We’ll update this every week until the Wine Advocate scores are published and we’ll give final chart positions.  Just click on a link for more about each wine including my tasting videos.  Enjoy!  Bill Blatch
