Château Coutet A Barsac

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2003

Nose is a lively mix of pure apricot, honey, smell-able acids, some honey and a humus-like note. Intensely concentrated on the palate. Texturally there’s a feel of a tannin-like quality on the palate, but this is not a criticism. The honeyed quality is intense. — 7 days ago

Château Climens

Barsac 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2010

Wow. Wow wow. A delicate and floral Barsac done without being overdone. Hard to describe. Looking for more bottles. Climens is always excellent but 2010 a notch above the usual high standards. — 3 months ago

Asphodele Sec Sémillon 2018

100% dry Semillon from Barsac. Coming from one of the great Sauternes houses, this has to be magnificent right? Of course it is. Pale lemon in the glass with a floral perfumed nose. Lemon zest, lychee, and green apple get the party started with pears and honeysuckle coming to play. The honey, the straw, the brioche bread, all so lovely and so deep. Such an exciting, ethereal nose.

Lovely is the word of the day here. This is a mood invoking wine. Soft but rich. Evocative yet subtle. The acidity is crisp and the mouthfeel silky. The palate displays nice orchard fruits and a touch of stone minerality. Very saline, very correct, and magnificently pure. Spring in a bottle. A very unique, fun wine and I cannot get enough.

Cyprès de Climens

Barsac Sémillon 2016

Incredible “desert” wine - sweet and full- bodied, but not too heavy. Pairs nicely with a tart or citrus-based desert. — 2 months ago

Franz Künstler

Hochheimer Kirchenstück Spätlese Riesling 1998

Served double-blind. The wine appears as a deep golden color. Medium+ viscosity. The nose is a fascinating combination of intense honey suckle, orange blossom, coriander, candied oranges, and candied nuts. The palate follows suit with more honey suckle, citrus blossom and a slight nutty characteristic. There is definitely some residual sugar here. There is really good acid keeping everything afloat. The finish is long and short of cloying. Really impressive texture. Based on the color and the somewhat oxidative notes, I figured this had at least 10-15 years of age on it. I vacillated between Sauternes and Riesling…ultimately calling Sauternes from Barsac (feeling as though this was more Semillon than Sauvignon Blanc). I chose, poorly. But the wine is good and it positively begs for spicy Asian food. — a month ago

Château de Fargues

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Very complex and long, a cross between Sauternes fruity style with Barsac floral style. Unctuous, rich, but balanced and fresh, ready to drink but really no rush. A top notch noble rot bottle. — 5 months ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent Bordeaux Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

2015 vintage. A project started in 2011 by Olivier Bernard (of Domaine de Chevalier fame) in Sauternes from vineyards in 3 different terroirs (Sauternes, Barsac and Bommes). Contrary to classic white Bordeaux, Sémillon is king here, reflecting in this 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon blanc blend, aged in French oak. Lune d'Argent is the middle range of the estate and the heart of the production. It stands for amazing value. Drinking beautifully now, but I suspect this will age gracefully for at least another 5 years. Light brilliant yellow. Very attractive nose combining exotic fruit with minerality, flowers and brioche. Juicy fresh pineapple and grapefruit, balanced mouth-watering acidity and perfectly integrated oak. This shows the potential of great dry white wines in the Sauternes region, where the famous sweet wines are sadly suffering from low demand in lethal combination with high production costs. Grab this one by the case at only 17,90 euros. Abv. 13%. — a year ago
