Bordeaux 2015: Sauternes round-up
26 May 2016

We are perhaps at odds with the general perception of 2015 Sauternes. Most if not all critics and merchants have hailed this a ‘fabulous’ vintage for sweet wines. We may well have to eat humble pie however as, in truth, our early impression of the vintage as a whole is characterised by sweetness and richness, but not necessarily complexity and balance. That said, our outlook is not all gloom; there are a handful of excellent wines which we are really confident in, packed as they are with unctuous botrytis notes and a fine vein of acidity. Yquem is clearly the cat’s whiskers, receiving 98-100 points from Neal Martin. Unfortunately, those who want to add this to their cellars will have to wait – we don’t expect this to be released en primeur. The other outstanding wines include: Doisy Vedrines, Doisy Daëne, Coutet, Rieussec, Suduiraut and of course, Chateau Climens.    Read More
