The brilliance of 2009 Sauternes First Growths continues unabated – Rabaud-Promis, Raymond Lafon, Rieussec, Sigalas-Rabaud, Suduiraut and Clos Haut-Peyraguey! I have never seen anything like this in my 30+ years working in Bordeaux.
If you are interested in buying these wines in the 2009 En Primeur campaign don’t forget to sign up for my full tasting notes at the top right hand corner of the page. PS For those who are wondering we do know that de Fargues and Raymond Lafon aren’t First Growths – we just think they should be! PPS We have also tasted d’Yquem and Climens at the Chateaux and these videos will follow next on this site! Bill Blatch
