Well Steve has arrived in Bordeaux and our 2010 adventure has begun! Tomorrow morning we are tasting all of the top 2010 and 2008 Sauternes alongside Neal Martin courtesy of Laure de Lambert des Granges at Chateau Sigalas Rabaud (see video preview below). After that we have a lightning trip around Sauternes and Barsac taking in Chateau d’Yquem, Domaine de l’Alliance, Chateau Climens and finally Chateau Cantegril where we will taste a verticle selection of Denis Dubourdieu’s fantastic L’Extravagant de Doisy Daene – it’s a hard life!
We have already sneeked in small tastings at Clos Haut-Peyraguey, Sigalas Rabaud and Raymond Lafon which are very illuminating. Videos for these and all the events tomorrow will go up on Saturday for your weekend viewing – Enjoy! Bill Blatch
