The biggest selection of Sauternes wines available anywhere in the UK will be available direct to the public through internet Sauternes and Barsac Specialist, Bordeaux Gold.
Sauternes expert Bill Blatch, known to the wine trade as 'the ultimate Bordeaux insider' has personally selected 100 wines that range from the 1986 Sigalas Rabaud, the oldest of the wines to the youngest which is a 2008 d'Yquem.
"I've tasted each of the vintages on my list, some of them many times" said Bill Blatch "Sauternes has been my passion for almost 30 years and I have really got to know very well the vineyards, wine makers and Chateaux in Sauternes and Barsac"
The Spring Offer from Bordeaux Gold features wines from all the top Chateaux and with every First Growth represented, makes this the most comprehensive list of Sauternes and Barsac wines the UK has seen, and includes many wines that cannot be found in the UK.
Bottle prices range from as low as £8.22 through to £493.20 and include some of the truly great vintages of this century such as the 2001, 2005 and 2007.
There are some great value wines to be found on the list including the hard-to-get-hold-of Doisy Daene 2006 at £12.84 for a half bottle/£24.33 for a bottle, and the very sweet, rich and full, La Tour Blanche 1998 at £17.15 for a half bottle/£33.06 for a bottle.*
Blatch has sourced 5 vintages of the rare and much sought after l'Extravagant de Doisy Daene along with lesser know gems like the 2003 La Clotte Cazalis. There are also a range of vintages of the best known labels including 6 vintages of Chateau d'Yquem, 7 vintages of Chateau Suduiraut and 9 vintages of Chateau de Fargues.
All wines have been stored in perfect conditions in a Bordeaux cellar giving them superb provenance and will be shipped to the UK in May. The sheer breadth of the list will provide Sauternes fans with wines for drinking now as well as wines for laying down for the future, or for investment purposes.
Blatch's Blog at http://www.bordeauxgold.com will provided customers with a wealth of tasting notes and videos to help select the best wines for any occasion. "No-one needs to select a wine and hope for the best" said Bill Blatch "the Bordeaux Gold blog is stacked full of information that makes buying easy".
