Sauternes

Château Guiraud

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2008

Special stuff (and special bottle acquired at the chateau in ‘16, a magical place). Lighter and less sweet vs what I was expecting. Millions of peaches (and apricots) & wildflower honey. Lychee. White pepper, candied ginger, orange peel and mandarin orange on the finish. Slightly muted but delicate florals on the nose. Bottle probably still too cold. Either way, great with baked peaches & vanilla custard.

Great stuff, and great value. Whenever I happen across aged bottles for sale I try to acquire, always a good move.

It pains me to think about Sauternes as a value because it takes so much effort and expense to make these beautiful (and woefully under appreciated wines), but you’re right, they are values—and better with age. After 10+ years, the oak is completely subsumed, the interesting tertiary notes are beginning to peak through and there’s still so much freshness and bright fruit.

1er Cru Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Dark color. Nose: dark honey. Overripe pineapple. Vanilla. A little caramel. Taste: caramel, butterscotch. Tree sap. Mild bitter orange. Milk chocolate. Maple syrup, coconut sugar. Dried flowers. I miss the freshness of young Sauternes - but wow. 95.

Mature. Enjoyed with apricots sautéed with the same wine topped with pistachio mascarpone cream. Delicious all around. — 15 days ago

Very rich, with a nutty oxidised palate. There was botrytis that year, which added a real Sauternes aspect, but in a sparkling wine. Very interesting. — 19 days ago

About as close as you’ll get to American Sauternes. — 2 years ago

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

A sweet wine but it's well balanced so you aren't overpowered by it. Flower aromas and light fruit notes. — 11 days ago

Sisters Eola Amity Hills Chardonnay 2018

Nice toasted oak and vanilla notes, somewhat reminiscent of a Sauternes. This wine would easily pass for a French Chardonnay. — 3 months ago
