2009 Sauternes by the Riverside

Sometimes even I think opening a bottle of Sauternes can be a bit daunting.  It’s somehow easier to open a bottle of red for lunch or to take some dry white along on a picnic.  It really shouldn’t be like that though as this clip shows – you can drink Sauternes anywhere and at any time.

On Friday Steve and I were enjoying a day’s fishing, trying our best to relieve a chalk stream of some unwanted pike.  An unsuccessful morning meant lunch and a glass of wine or two was much needed.  I had a selection of red and white Bordeaux in my car boot but, as many of you will have recently taken delivery of your 2009 Sauternes it seemed a good idea to try some Chateau Climens and Chateau Guiraud alongside our sandwiches just let you know how they are tasting.

It’s something that I should do more often and I’d encourage anyone to do the same – Sauternes can help to make the most of the most mundane meal or occasion and always puts a smile on my face.

We never did catch any pike but the river keeper very kindly provided us with some crayfish for our efforts which we had for supper – more about that later.  Steve thinks that the clip below might explain why the fish weren’t biting!  Bill Blatch
