First 2012 Sauternes En Primeur Prices – Climens, Doisy-Vedrines and La Tour Blanche

The first 2012 Sauternes prices are out here – 2012 Sauternes En Primeur

We are not offering every wine in this difficult vintage – only the best and the best value.  No wine fits this category better than Ch Climens who have produced perhaps the wine of the vintage and substantially reduced their price – the cheapest Climens on the market?  Here’s my tasting video:

And then there is the remarkable Ch Doisy-Vedrines which defied the odds in 2012 to produce an excellent wine at almost full production.  Here are 2 videos – my tasting video and an interview with cellarmaster, Frédéric Deyres, who tells me exactly how they brought the vintage home using cryoextraction at precisely the right moment:

And finally there is the remarkable Ch La Tour Blanche which produced just 24 barrels of grand vin!  You’ll have to move fast if you want any of this strictly selected and well priced wine.  Again here are a couple of videos to help you make your choice:

All 2012 wines will be offered in half cases (6 bottles or 12 half bottles).  Watch out too for some special mixed cases I have personally selected.  You can explore all the wines offered by clicking – HERE

Enjoy!  Bill Blatch

  1. Michael Says:

    You have been mentioning that the Sauternes from 2012 will be “early drinking”. Any with good cellaring potential?

  2. admin Says:

    Climens is the best for cellaring – it will improve for 20 years at least. Some of the small production 1st Growths from Sauternes are also promising (e.g. la Tour Blanche, Guiraud).
