Is Sauternes 2009 a worthy addition to a wine gift hamper?
Published on 31/03/2010

Sauternes 2009 could be a welcome addition to a wine gift hamper as the variety has been recommended by an expert in the field.

Jancis Robinson - often referred to as the "Queen of wine" - has been speaking of her affection for the brand through a social networking site, the Independent has revealed.

She has been exclaiming her views via Twitter during En Primeur Bordeaux week, which is an annual viticulture event in France.

One of her tweets read: "Just had my first mouthful of 09 Sauternes. Delicious."

Her follow up broadcast two hours later stated that the vintage should be the beverage to remind people "how good these wines are".

Charlie Matthews, who works for Bordeaux Uncorked, replied to the posts by referring to the variety as "liquid gold".

Earlier in the week, Cathy Packe - writing for the newspaper - recommended that fans of the drink should take a trip to the region of Aquitaine to see the wine-making process firsthand.
