2009 Sauternes – Second Growths (2 of 2)

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Now it is the turn of Doisy-Vedrines, Filhot, Lamothe, Lamothe-Guignard and Nairac to show off in front of the flip cam.

Next up are the First Growths! At this stage I can definitely say that there is more to the 2009 Sauternes and Barsac wines than the 2007s, certainly in terms of sweetness, up front fruit flavours and overall consistency. The 2007s are great wines that may be a little shy at this stage having just been bottled, something that definitely can’t be said of the big and bold 2009s. Bill Blatch
