Bordeaux, France


Bordeaux Blanc 2020

Gorgeous bottle, nice yellow fruit and subtle orange rind, mellowed out and integrated. Abrupt finish, which is good for a white. This would be considered “smooth” by the uninitiated, and “elegant” by those who think they know more than they do. I love this. — 3 days ago

Château Guiraud

Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classé Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003


Deep golden in color.

Strong nose of honeydew, citrus, lemons, honey, spices, melons, oranges, tangerines, tropical fruits and pineapples. A really beautiful nose.

Full bodied and buttery with high acidity.

Sweet on the palate with melons, red apples, honey, tropical fruits, spices, light earth, honeysuckle and white pepper.

Long finish with oranges and spices.

This is a fabulous dessert wine from Bordeaux, France.

Very complex with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.

Delicious right out of the bottle, good by itself, and even better after an hour of airtime.

Thanks Scott for sharing this with me.

This 19 year old is smooth and generous. Rich and extracted. Sweet and well balanced.

I've had the 2009 vintage not too long ago, and this is showing so much better. What a wonderful surprise.

Paired very nicely with the blue cheese. Drank from a 375ml bottle.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

96 points.

Now I just need to find some!

Château Doisy-Daëne

Bordeaux Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc 2016

2016 vintage. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. A hot year for white Bordeaux, but still zippy and zesty with a bitter grapefruit finish. I would have loved to see some Sémillon in the blend, but a nice wine anyway — 5 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Aile d'Argent Blanc Bordeaux White Bordeaux Blend 2018

Deep gold. Opulent, Sauternes-like nose of baked quince and vanilla. Bright acidity leads the medium full palate layered with citrus rind, vanilla, baked quince, and magnolia blossom adding a hint of balsam in the lengthy finish. "Elegant and refined" is an understatement! A wonderful Bordeaux Blanc for your main course of trout almandine, roasted fowl, or Tandoori salmon (to name a few). Drink now through 2027. — 12 days ago

Red Bordeaux Blend

Smooth like Coltrane. No tannins to speak of, wonderfully round and inviting with smooth and wonderful perfectly ripe fruit shot through with vegetable tanned leather and smoked baking spices. It’s interesting because this wine exists outside of the ideas of cooked pies and food and everything in between, it exists a wine. We had it with perfectly cut steaks, asparagus, and sweet potatoes. It complemented it well but at the same time it could stand on its own. This wine slaps you back if you try to push it down. — 2 days ago

Clos de Lunès

Lune d'Argent White Bordeaux Blend 2020

2020 vintage. As usual terrific value. 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. Exotic fruit goes hand in hand with zesty acidity. Very good length with a hint of vanilla. Should be even better with a few years of bottle ageing. Abv.13%. — 4 days ago

Château Fourcas Dupré

Bordeaux Grand Vin Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

Star bright straw gold. Wildly aromatic nose of citrus zest and white flowers. These are echoed on the medium light palate with lemongrass, orange rind, and balsa wood. Juicy, medium plus acidity. Taut minerality masquerading as the slightest hint of tannin. Classic BDX Blanc with typical balance of SB and Semillon that delivers the quintessential experience. Go traditional with trout almandine or modernize with fried chicken or Maryland crab cakes. Drink now through 2026. — 17 days ago

Château Lusseau

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Dan R

Very enjoyable, excellent value left bank red. Nicely aromatic, with red currant, tobacco and pencil lead on the nose. Medium bodied , tight and firm on the palate with excellent concentration and grip. Not an ounce of fat on this chiseled red. Glides to a finish featuring polished tannins and a kick of crushed rock minerality. 31 € on the list and worth every penny. — 12 days ago
