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.

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. — 13 days ago
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. — 8 days ago
2014 vintage. One of the last vintages of the late Denis Dubordieu who sadly passed away in 2016. This was a great year for Sauternes, combining lots of botrytis with high acidity. Refined perfume with dried apricot, almond, quince, orange peel and the typical roasted noble rot aroma. In the mouth it is very fresh with juicy acidity balancing the layers of dried fruits and a long lingering finish that leaves impressions of almonds and fresh mint. Gorgeous Barsac and reasonably priced. Abv. 13,5 %. — 13 days ago
