2012 Sauternes – First Thoughts

In the video below I give my first thoughts about the 2012 Sauternes vintage prior to some more detailed tasting notes that will appear over the next few weeks and, of course, my 2012 Sauternes Vintage Report.

It is a vintage already mired in controversy following the early decisions by Yquem and Rieussec not to release.  All is, however, not what it seems and the vintage is more complicated than at first glance.  For some it was close to being another superb vintage but for others it never really had a chance.  All will be revealed in good time but for now here’s a taster of what is to come:

Enjoy! Bill Blatch

    Bill, what about no Yquem in 1992?

    I’m glad someone is awake! The next blog will be an interview we’ve just done with Pierre Lurton of Yquem and the full list of Yquem no shows is part of our discussion. Apologies but our clips are always live and just occasionally my memory plays tricks on me.
