2009 Sauternes tasting – unclassified wines

Monday, March 29th, 2010

Here it is – the first look at the 2009 Sauternes and Barsac wines compared alongside each other! Everyone is currently twittering about this vintage so we thought we’d give you something more tangible than a tweet – a first hand look. Amongst these lesser wines Cantegril, La Clotte-Cazalis, Latrezotte, Liot and Domaine de l’Alliance shone.


Other Chateaux in this flight of wines are Bastor-Lamontagne, de Veyres, Lamourette, Les Justices, Partarrieu and Tuyttens. Bill Blatch

2009 Sauternes tasting – Château Liot, Barsac

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

This video showcases Château Liot, an unclassified but undoubtedly fine Barsac wine whose vineyards lie just to the south of Château Climens. Jerry David, the owner, is justly proud of his efforts.

2009 Sauternes Report – February 2010

Friday, February 26th, 2010

A day in Barsac checking up on the 2009 Sauternes vintage and we visited a range of properties from unclassified wines to first and second growths to get an across-the-board view.

Took in Château Climens, Château Coutet, Château Doisy-Vedrines, Château La Clotte-Cazalis and Château Liot.  We loved visiting the tiny Domaine de l’Alliance which has a wonderful story behind it and is producing some great wines from vineyards in Fargue. We’ll tell you more about them another time.

Finished the day at my favourite restaurant in Langon, Claude Darroze with a bottle of Château Nairac 1976… which went surprisingly well with the wild boar. Watch the video to discover how the vintage is shaping up, then leave us a comment or question below.
