Sweet Bordeaux, the wine merchant Tom Dobson’s favorite

For years Tom Dobson has not set foot in France and yet sweet white wines of Bordeaux are in his heart. An unforgettable sensory memory! Today, in his retail shop, located in Dallas, Texas, the seller regularly organizes events around the Bordeaux wines. And among 8000 references, he offers Sauternes and Loupiac.

Sweet Bordeaux wines attract US consumers

Tom Dobson is a true lover of sweet white wines of Bordeaux. His first tasting, years ago, was at a wine tasting during the Primeurs. Since then, to help his clients discover the soft white wines of Bordeaux, Tom Dobson first bets on the brand best known in the United States: Sauternes.

“Personally, Sauternes is one of the best wines I have ever tasted. But to really appreciate the sweet white wines of Bordeaux, you have to taste several simultaneously. This is how you can really appreciate the differences in flavors”.
