2010 Sauternes – Vineyard Views

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

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

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
