I hope you enjoy my full 2011 Sauternes Report published today. Here is a direct link:
I apologise that it has taken longer this year but I have now officially retired (that sounds very odd) from my negociant life at Vintex and saying goodbye has taken up a lot of my time. The good news is that there should be more time for Sauternes and Bordeaux Gold from now on!
Once you have read the report don’t forget to take a look at the wines here:
Just by clicking on a wine label you can get tasting notes from myself, Neal Martin (writing for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate), Jeannie Cho Lee (writing for Decanter), Julia Harding (writing for Jancis Robinson’s Purple Pages), James Suckling, Michel Bettane, James Molesworth (writing for The Wine Spectator), Chris Kissack and many more. For alternative views on the vintage I’d point you towards Neal Martin, Jancis Robinson (both require subscription) or the remarkable Wine Doctor, Chris Kissack, for an in depth free assessment.
Everyone has something in common though – they all love the incredibly fresh 2011 Sauternes. Enjoy! Bill Blatch
