Unfortunately as they say in Bordeaux, everyone likes a good Sauternes, but not everyone buys them!

p.s.: I very much agree with the comment about Sauternes/Barsac - it is a shame that Sigalas Rabaud, La Tour Blanche, Clos Haut Peyraguey and even de Malle do not feature in the value for money category in this vintage ... That said, there is also a case to be made for many of the less feted Graves/Pessac blancs - Clos Marsalette, Clos Floridene, Picque Caillou and de Fieuzal to name but four ....

Excited to see Pichon Lalande here in the top 10 — this was, for me, the most enticing and intriguing wine of the vintage – by some distance the best of the wines on show in the Medoc UGC tastings … It would have been nice, however, to see Domaine de Chevalier (rouge ou blanc) make the top 10; Evangile, too, was very impressive (though I suspect few tasted it)

Has nobody heard of any sweet Bordeaux wines other than Yquem? In this vintage the whole top ten should be from Sauternes and Barsac and, without doubt, the best bargains are from this region.
All of the First Growth Sauternes, some Second Growths and at least four of the top unclassified wines were better than anything the First Growth reds and equivalent could produce.
Rot is good for sweet white wines and the enemy of the reds - this was transparently clear in 2013.
