Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Quince-jelly, nectarine and orangepeel.
Honey, pepper and narcissus.
Varnish, lemon oil and marzipan.
Dense, sweet, peppery mouthfeel.
Powerful wine. I’m thinking blue cheeses.

Sauternes 2009

Awesome Sauternes. Definitely on the lighter and slightly less sweet side, I think this is Barsac even though it's labeled Sauternes on the front. (the cork and back label say Barsac). Orange marmalade, ginger, honey, poached peaches and pears, and a bit of baking spice. Very rich but not too cloying as far as Sauternes goes. Medium to medium + body, medium + acid, plenty sweet as you'd expect. Wonderful soft texture. Amazing alongside the post-dinner cheese plate. — 5 years ago

L'Extravagant de Doisy-Daene Sauvignon Blanc Sémillon 1996

Color of honey. Nose and palette share a lot. Syrup of honeysuckle, stems, herbs. Very thick. Shockingly not cloying despite the diabetes-inducing sugar levels—great acid. A finish that lasts for minutes. — 5 months ago

Château Climens

Les Cypres de Climens Barsac Sémillon 2013

8.9

Drank 4/26/18 at a tasting event.

2nd wine of Climens. Nose of pineapple and honeyed apricots, with some slight volatility that blows off after a few minutes. Flavors of pineapple and some light honey, without the depth or richness of the Climens. Decent wine, but would vastly prefer the Doisy Vedrines for around the same price.

4/22/7/3/3 +50 = 89 pts.

L'Extravagant Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2002

Huge, oily, big Sauternes of the very select and rare bottling that is oft less seen than the grand dame of them all d'Yquem.

Orange marmalade, honey, sweet biscuit, vanilla, thisnis massively flavored and textures...more acidity for me would have made it a show stopper though it made its presence felt.
