Sauternes Sale – Spotlight on Filhot
We thought it would help to highlight some of the wines in the January Sale with a short video about the Chateaux. Below I talk to and taste with Gabriel de Vaucelles, owner/manager at Filhot about the style of his wines and the vinification.
For a lighter styled, fresh and lively Sauternes at reasonable prices then there is no need to look further. Here I taste recent vintages but in the sale we have some great value older Filhot – the 2006 (bottles), the 2004 (halves) and the 1999 (halves). All of these vintages are a little bit ‘forgotten’ which makes them great value, especially when at these sale prices! Enjoy! Bill Blatch
