Bordeaux Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

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.

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. — a month ago

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.

Château Lynch-Bages

Blanc de Lynch-Bages White Bordeaux Blend 2018

Star bright straw gold. Abundant and inviting nose of honeysuckle and honeyed citron. Medium light palate yields layers of orange rind, honeysuckle, dried quince, white pepper (especially on the finish), lime cream, and a host of others. All that flavor added to the medium plus acidity makes for a premier white wine for fine dining. Sturdy enough for medium cheeses or roasted poultry/pork, but with enough finesse for seafood, salads, and lighter fare. Want to experience the upper echelons of white wine without breaking $100? This is your intro. Drink now through 2025. — 23 days ago
