About Us

If you love the wines of Sauternes and Barsac then you’re in good company because we think the pleasure of drinking a bottle of Sauternes is hard to beat. It’s as special as the wines are and we want everyone to know about it!

So our company Bordeaux Gold and this blog are about sharing with you the knowledge and experience that “Bordeaux’s Best Kept Secret” Bill Blatch has gathered over 30 years of living in Bordeaux and working in the Bordeaux wine trade.

Along the way we’re hoping to create somewhere we can all contribute our views, opinions and tasting notes – and so increase the useful information available to us all.  Information that will help us make wise buying and drinking decisions.

You’re invited to make a comment, ask a question or tell us about your Sauternes and Barsac experiences after any of our posts.  Feel free to get involved and we shall look forward to getting to know you.

If you want to know more about Bill Blatch and find out what other notable wine journalists and experts think of him, click on his name above or on the link on the right hand side of the page.

Other contributors to the site will be Steve Webb and Venice Marriott from the UK, enthusiasts, keen to spread the word about Sauternes and Barsac wines and set them free from the unjust reputation they have as simply being ‘dessert wines’.  In fact, they’ve made it their mission to prove it to you.

Plus we’ll be inviting other experts to share their information with you.
