Barsac, Graves

Château Climens

Barsac 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2007

Very fresh and balanced, elegant, a pleasure to drink. But short to expectations, both for the Chateau as well as the vintage. Second bottle and consistent observation. — 25 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

For whatever reason this just didn’t show like it should have. I’ll wait a few more years on the next one. — 15 hours ago

Château La Tour-Martillac

Pessac-Léognan AOC White Bordeaux Blend 2000

Fantastic experience before and after food. Before the bitters were very noticable and made me believe it was Grüner Veltliner. After the food you noticed the fresh acidity with a kicker. Great wine for 21 year old!! — 6 days ago

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2007

Aromas and flavors of honey, apricot, orange blossoms and beeswax. Hints of mango, thyme and pineapple. Quite viscous and well balanced due to the bracing acidity. Oily texture. Extremely long finish. — 25 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1989

Vintage 1989 | 3/4 transparant, Italian rooftiles brown rim. A very intense bouquet: cedar, forrest wood, laurel, flint, cherries, só multi layered you tend to smell endless. Powerful taste, prominent bitters, still too young imo, the taste comes together with the entrecôte, awesome harmony. A benchmark for wine lovers. Fine that HB delivers to mark a special moment! I bought this when my daughter was born | at restaurant Pollevie — 5 days ago

Château Branon

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2008

Like most of the 08’s this needed an hr of air to reveal a classy & polished Bordeaux showing plum & cassis, graphite, leather, spice & tobacco. — 12 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

This is a delicious dessert wine from France. Sweet on the palate with great complexity.

Showing honey, yellow apples, apricots, spices, sweet nectar, white wild flowers, melons, brown sugar and spices.

Medium bodied with high acidity.

Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.

Thank you Barry for sharing this with me.

This needs no food. Just sip and enjoy.

This 8 year old will continue age nicely in the next 40 years.

Just delicious.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

97 points.

$160 (375 ml).

Tropical fruits commingle with the typical aromas of molasses, orange peel, and dried apricots. Hint of mint as well. Salted sweetness is countered by abundant fresh acidity. Would like to see a bit more viscosity on the medium to full body.

A simple good pairing with dark chocolate. Very youthful at 23 years.

Le Clarence de Haut-Brion Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2010

Soft on the palette and luscious on the nose. Nice presence on sandalwood and oak. A bargain wine and vintage drinkable now or for another 5 years in the cellar. — 11 days ago
