I’ve never seen such colour in the vineyards as in this 2010 Sauternes vintage. After leaving the party at Chateau Guiraud ()see post below) I just had to stop on my way to Chateau Coutet and film some of the vineyards and reflect on the harvest at Chateau d’Yquem and elsewhere.
I must point out that generally filming while driving is a very bad idea indeed but I couldn’t resist. All I can say in my defence is that the roads in Sauternes are very sleepy and I do know them rather better than most. Bill Blatch
