Bordeaux Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Doisy-Daëne

Bordeaux Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

100% Sauvignon. Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of green apples and honeysuckle. Firm acidity leads the medium palate which yields green apple, citrus rind, and a touch of birch. Moderately lingering, slightly stony finish. Sauvignon done Bordeaux style with body and brightness that makes a perfect pair for seafood, roasted poultry, or Asian cuisine. Drink now through 2024. — 2 days ago

Used to sell this wine many moons ago. Haven’t had it since but miss it!

Château Laribotte

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

Brilliant golden color. White flowers and intense honey aromas. Pallet is fruity (dried candy, lemon peel apricot), ripe and luscious. Some heft, but nice acidity. Mouth Coating. Pleasant finish. — 5 days ago

Château Magneau

Cuvée Julien Graves 2014

2014 vintage. The website being very vague, the information is coming from other sources. A Sémillon (60%) and Sauvignon Blanc (40%) blend from selected parcels vinified completely in wood. Note that this estate produces more white than red, with 25 hectares out of 40 planted with white grapes. Brilliant light golden yellow. Exotic fruits and white peach with a toasted hint. Lightweight in alcohol (abv. 12,5%) but intense flavour of ripe pineapple and peach with crisp acidity and good length. Not particularly complex but attractive and probably at its peak. — a month ago

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2009

This is a delicious dessert wine from France.

Delicious right out of the bottle and much better after an hour of airtime.

Showing oranges, tangerines, honey, ripen apples, Indian spices, pears, light tropical fruits, peaches and white pepper.

Full-bodied with high acidity and well balanced. Rich and extracted.

Showing nice complexity with a nice buttery mouthfeel.

Delicious and engaging.

Will age nicely in the next 20 to 30 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

I had it all by itself as a dessert.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

Excellent review, as always. Do you have a price point? You usually include…

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

WOTN without a doubt! Bottle empty in 30 minutes or so, what a beauty this great aged Sauternes. And I think this wine has at least a decade to stay on this level. — 7 days ago

Château de Rochemorin

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Great yellow colour, and rich grapefruit aromas. Underwhelming fruit flavours in the mouth but with good length. Subtle and sophisticated, but needs the right pairing. Not a great match with chicken pie, with spring vegetables. Would have been better with simple grilled fish or prawns.
Maybe a bit expensive at £15

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

Just perfect whether a 1/2 or a full bottle. Primary taste of white flowers, lychee, peach and pineapple. Perfect acidity, bitterness and off sweet. Now 10 to 15 years waiting for these secondary tastes to develop. Quite a challenge to not touch something this good earlier. — a day ago

Château Nicot

Entre-Deux-Mers 2019

A touch of Muscadelle accents the floral qualities of this traditional Bordeaux white blend. (Balanced amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon). Nicely perfumed nose of pear, tropical fruits, grass and wet stones. Melon, white peach, lemon and mineral flavors on the pallet. Beautiful balance, texture and acidity. Fantastic food wine. — 5 days ago

Château Climens

Asphodele Sec Sémillon 2018

100% Semillon. Star bright yellow gold. Inviting nose of baked quince and dried yellow flowers. Complex medium-bodied palate echoes the nose adding layers of dried pineapple (without the sugar), lanolin, and tennis shoes. Medium minus acidity means this wine can sit with spicier fare than the typical Bordeaux, but still hold its own with traditional “white wine” fare. Moderate finish. With no Sauvignon Blanc this is not your typical Bordeaux Blanc. The extra weight and lower acidity means you can take it to more “Chardonnay-ish” places than usual. Southwest Asian fare did well for me. Drink now through 2025. — 24 days ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

15’ Château Pepe Clement. Should’ve decanted this for sometime. 15 needs a few more years in bottle. That being said… Petro soon opens up to this magnificent bottling. Orange blossom, pineapple, Honeysuckle. Zesty acidity. All spring out of the glass. — a month ago
