Bordeaux Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Legendary wine, said that in the 18th century was introduced to Sultan of Constantinople's palace b/c of its clarity and called "mineral water from Carbonnieux", defying Islamic law. Pale lemon-green with pronounce aromas of tropical and stone fruits with herb notes. On the palate flavors of melon, mango, apple, green peppers and a crisp mineral edge. Medium+ length, balanced acidity, ending with a fruit, citrus mineral character. Nice, let this age a bit, better than ‘17. Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago

Château Graville-Lacoste

Graves Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

My go-to casual oyster shucking wine for summer. A little less complex and nuanced than the 2016 but very solid nonetheless. — 3 days ago

Château Landereau

Entre-Deux-Mers Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

Same vintage 6 months after. Half bottle. Super lemony grassy nose. Subtle mouthfeel with some strong acid, a good grip and a lemon curd thing happening all along. The finish is fresh and smooth. Rather a good persistence. My go to white Bordeaux wine when eating oysters on the bassin d'arcachon. A real crowd pleaser who means summer vacation and seefood to me. — 15 days ago

Château Guiraud

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2014

Deep gold with pronounced aromas of ripe fruits, honey, currants and floral notes on a rich sweet nose. On the palate flavors of pure honey, apricot, baked apple, raisins and sweet vanilla. Rich full-bodied, syrup like, Botrytis at its best. Long finish, vivid acidity, luscious, great to drink now. Tasting Sample. — 3 days ago

@Stuart Scheff Stuart Good luck with all the East Coast heat I keep hearing about. We had a light dusting of snow yesterday and it was in the low 30’s F this morning. I have friends in the NHL that tell me that they’re taking notice of the Sabres moves. Cheers 🏒

Château Rieussec

Carmes de Rieussec Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

This fabulous 2015 vintage is fresh, vibrant, acidic and crispy with pineapple 🍍, candied orange, caramel apple and hints of fresh banana! This may be the second wine of rieussec but the great vintage makes up for it. Deliciously cuts through the fattiness of the fois gras. Very nice. — 6 days ago

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

The “assemblage” Sauvignon and sémillon 85/15 is just perfect. Lemon, grapefruit, and exotic fruits are mixed in an amazing and smooth way. Absolutely fabulous, the best white Pessac Léognan, I have ever drink.., just unbelievable. I need to buy more of this 2005! That was my last bottle. Parker: 95 — 6 days ago

Clos des Lunes Lune d'Argent Bordeaux Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

Herbal nose with a hint of lemon, some mineral thing going on too like crushed oyster shell. The palate is a model of balance with a sheer acid backbone and some layers of fruits, grip and a salty touch too. Good grip before a long finish with salt and lemon. 2nd take of the same vintage in 2 days. Killer value! — 12 days ago

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2015

Delectable Wine
9.5

The 2015 Coutet is a little reduced on the nose and lacks the flair of some of its peers. Pinched at
the moment - maybe going through a sulky phase?The palate is well balanced and very harmonious, viscous in texture with perfectly matched acidity and fine delineation and precision toward the finish. Once the bouquet awakens this should be a seriously fine Barsac/Sauternes. Tasted blind at the Southwold 2015 Bordeaux tasting. (Neal Martin, Vinous, July 2019)
