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 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. — 19 days ago

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 1975

Very interesting nose of caramel and lemon and a waxy character. Still has very vibrant fruit and a tropical fruit finish. From a half bottle. 👍👍 — 22 days ago

Chateau Suduirat

1er Cru Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

A great vintage for this producer, the wine is excellent now and likely to improve of course; gold color with a highly viscous heavy swirl; nose is cremes, desserts, caramelized nuts, tropical fruit, and honey, and a slight minerality; mouthcovering sumptuous taste with a fresh acidity to keep the backbone. — a month ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

Strong Haut Brion from 2001. Opened about an hour before the steak course arrived, by which time it developed an more intense but a very pretty nose of black fruits, cedar, some tobacco and herbs. The mouth feel was good and stood up to a grass fed ribeye steak. 2001 isn’t a standout year but it is good shoulder vintage. — 22 days ago

Château Haut-Brion

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. — 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. — 6 days ago

Clémentin de Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2000

Nicely evolved with jammy black fruit, cassis, a touch of tomato jam, a whiff of cedar. More super Tuscan on the nose vs a classical Pessac.
Poised, impeccably balanced and so elegant on the palate. Seamless! The tannins fine, dusty and completely mellowed down, the aftertaste really compelling. Still not very classical Bordeaux, but delicious nonetheless!
