Bordeaux Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1996

Open that bottle night! We’ve had this kicking around the cellar for nearly a decade and it was time. I’ve drank many Sauternes but have dreamed of tasting Yquem since devouring Richard Olney’s monograph (and Jeremiah Tower’s descriptions of Yquem bacchanals) as a boy—yeah I was a maybe a bit precocious.

Nose of muscat grapes. A brilliant medium amber, luscious mouthfeel. Mature. Honey, almond essence, crème brûlée, coconut, candied pear. The richness sets Yquem apart. What a treat. Happy birthday

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

What do you do to close an excellent Bordeaux 2000 tasting?
Exactly you serve the Rieussec 2001! What a fantastic Sauternes this is. Umami, sweet, sauer, liquid gold! Thanks
@Eric Hoepelman!!! The video of JS telling them this one gets a 100 score is splendid!

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2013

Disaster for reds but great vintage for Sauternes. I always found 01, 05, 10 a bit heavy to drink now but this is refreshing and has beautiful acidity. One of my favorite Sauternes vintages. — 19 days ago
