Bordeaux Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Doisy-Védrines

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2013

9.3

Drank 10/19/17. Tasting pour.

Nose of honeyed apricots, with strong botrytis character. Flavors of peach and pineapple, coated in honey, perhaps lacking some of the concentration and viscosity of the 11 or even the 14.

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2014

9.2

GL tasting Pape Clement 10/18/17. 3 vintages each. Unusual whites. 1k cases per year. Really floral and fragrant nose all around the three wines. Forty percent semillion plus Sauvignon Gris and.... Tropical and white flowers notes and acidic and minerals on palate and long biting finish. Interesting. 2010 with oxidative notes and vegetative hints but palate is nicely balanced and with minerals and richness due to oak aging and complex mellow finish. 2005 very complex and less floral nose but good body and balanced palette and good finish. 9.1 for the two older. '10 good for aging. — 2 days ago

Château Guiraud

Petit Guiraud Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2013

Young, inexpensive 2nd label Sauternes. Very reliable and drinking well. A very safe bet. A good starter dessert wine for the mother in law who doesn’t know as much as she thinks she does. Just sayin... — a day ago

Not sure the wine was this good but the pairing was. @Rina Kolotinsky homemade pate was fabulous with this. — 8 days ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan White Bordeaux Blend 2001

Sweet core of black & blueberry fruits, cedar, leather, graphite, cigar box with a hint of oak. This is richer & more full bodied than the 01 Haut Brion I had 2 days ago. — 13 days ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2010

The fantastic texture and mouthfeel that I have come to love from Carbonnieux was very much intact. Complimented with flavor of dried apricot and apricot pits, it truly was still shining bright and accented with the nutty notes of its slow oxidation over the years in bottle. Truly a legendary Estate by any measure and they never disappoint! — 2 days ago

Château Olivier

Pessac-Léognan Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2015

Absolutely loving this 2015 vintage of Bordeaux whites - they're full of life and bright acidity and ample concentration in fruit. This one stands out a bit from some, it is more green and citric, which I like as well. Aromas of ginger, fresh grass cuttings, lemon peel, white hydrangeas all on the nose. The pallet is zingy, but with a light creamy texture as well - golden pear, Granny Smith apple, underripe grapefruit, white pepper, wet slate, and a touch of lemongrass to the finish. Needs several years but will see a great 10 year life ahead of it. Great stuff from one of the oldest in Pessac Leognan - 12th century! — 7 days ago

Chateau Suduirat

1er Cru Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003

Gold colour. Ripe crystalized citrus fruits. Barley sugar, citrus peel, long sugary finish. Just about balanced, but very rich. Long finish though, nice acidity on the end . A great Sauternes , showing the richness of the vintage but with balance and vivacity. Will last well I would imagine , but nice now. On the flight from São Paulo to Zurich . — 15 hours ago
