Bordeaux Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Coutet

Chartreuse de Coutet Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Quite consistent with my notes from ~6 months ago:

Nose has over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.
Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and mango.

Admittedly I love Sauternes and have many bottles, yet it's a rarity on opening and posting to the Community. We paired this bottle with a hard, smoked goat cheese from a local, Hudson valley producer, a solid match of sweet and salty.

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2014

A blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, & 2% Muscadelle. Golden with complex aromas, somewhat Riesling like, and adding a tropical bouquet. On the palate this botrytis rich wine shows apple, pineapple and honeysuckle flavors. Lingering finish ending with smoky vanilla notes. Was lucky enough to get a taste of this beauty. Will contine to age in the bottle. Tasting Sample. — a month ago

Clos Floridene

Graves Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2015

Tasted at least twice before as recently as August 2019. Previous notes apply. This was quite delicious with the small oak component adding perfectly balanced texture. Made for earlier consumption. — 3 days ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

A bit too cold and probably too young. After some additional air it started to reveal its qualities. Looks like a promising wine — 5 days ago

Y Ygrec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1972

This was in prime health at the tender age of 47. Beautifully aromatic and it tasted just as I imagined dry Sauternes would. A lovely curio for a school night - 1972 — 13 days ago

2001 vintage. 80 % Sauvignon blanc, 20 % Sémillon. Low yields (25 hl/ha), 10000 bottles produced. Deep golden colour, looks older than it tastes. Intense perfume of bee wax, almonds and dried flowers. Powerful, profound and very good length. For lovers of older white Bordeaux. — 16 days ago
