2009 Sauternes Tasting From Bottle – Part 1
Welcome back to the wonderful 2009 Sauternes vintage.
I’ve just finished tasting all the major Bordeaux wines from 2009 at the legendary annual Southwold tasting – reds and dry whites as well. The best Sauternes stole the show with only the top Pomerols and Pauillacs keeping them company.
Below is a video summary of the vintage and reports on of some unclassified and Second Growth wines – this really was a vintage in which everyone had a chance to create top quality wines and these represent fantastic value. If you haven’t yet got any in your cellar then do take a look at our full list here – 2009 Sauternes
Enjoy! Bill Blatch
