Sauternes and Burts Chips!
Have you ever had Yquem with crisps? It’s fantastic – better than with any sweet dessert for my palate! Take a look at the video below where we try eight differently styled Sauternes from the 2008 vintage with eight different flavours of Burts Chips, hand made in Devon.
One of the very best uses of Sauternes is as an aperitif served with just about any hors d’oeuvre you can imagine as illustrated by the different flavoured crisps here. Alternatively you can settle down in front of the television to watch a good movie or the game armed only with a bottle of Sauternes and a bag of Burts Chips!
In our January Sale there are some great value 2008 wines including the Suduiraut that went so well with the spicier crisps:
Maybe we’ve started another new trend? I hope so! Bill Blatch
