Château Belles Graves

Château du Hayot Andoyse

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2007

A striking copper gold in the glass. Floral aromas dominate the nose, with pretty white flowers and a touch of lavender. Creamy vanilla, lemon rind, and cinnamon accentuate. Pineapples and oranges top it off. While it can be a bit jammy, this is still a smooth, sleek Sauternes. Never degenerates into a syrupy goopy mess. Juicy with good minerality.

Candied fruit on the palate initially with more orange zest and lemon rind. The pineapples reappear and brings apricots with it. White flowers and subtle traces of almonds on the finish. Wonderful balance here throughout. Exquisite stuff.

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2004

1hr decant. One of the best smelling corks ever! Dark red color. Classic Bordeaux nose of earth, cedar, smoke, and massive floral elements. One of the deepest wines I’ve ever had. Dark cherry, flowers, and tar on the palate. Medium plus finish. Who said 2004 was an off year? This was awesome! — 18 days ago

Belles Grives Morgon Gamay 2018

Dark ruby purple in the glass. Inviting nose and palate of black cranberry, blackberry, and juicy licorice. Medium full body. Medium tannins (only on the finish). A cru Beaujolais that will appeal to newbies and snobs alike. Just enough fruit. Just enough “stuff.” Drink now through 2022. — 13 days ago

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

I thought it might be a little dark but this is nicely resolved and on the young side. Lots of unctuous apricot and creme brûlée, good acidity, Exemplary stuff — a day ago

Château Graville-Lacoste

Graves Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

The 2018 is drinking very well. The 2019 need another year because the sauvignon blanc over powers. And it still retains a mild spritz. Neither vintage is "classic" representation of a Graves. But the 2018 is very enjoyable and easy to drink. Low alcohol. Fair price for quality. — 19 days ago
