Not content with tasting the the 2016 Sauternes on Friday we tasted them again on Saturday at our luxurious lakeside lodge. We were joined by journalists and wine buyers from around the world – thanks to Chip Delsener for the photo below, Steve’s father Derek for some superb Bar-B-Q sausages, Nico McGough for bringing some excellent blood sausages to add to the selection and to the Sauternais for providing some excellent older wines to drink with them. If you haven’t tried Sauternes with sausages then you haven’t lived!
And we tasted again all day Sunday with more journalists and wine buyers from around the world at the Vintex tasting at Le Lac de Bordeaux – thank you Philippe and the Vintex team.
As a result we now have a good idea of what the vintage is like and it is goods news at all levels and for all pockets. We will shoot some vintage summary videos covering all the wines and put them up here as soon as we can. Don’t miss them! Bill Blatch
