Château Graves Des Annereaux

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2009

This is a delicious dessert wine from France.

Delicious right out of the bottle and much better after an hour of airtime.

Showing oranges, tangerines, honey, ripen apples, Indian spices, pears, light tropical fruits, peaches and white pepper.

Full-bodied with high acidity and well balanced. Rich and extracted.

Showing nice complexity with a nice buttery mouthfeel.

Delicious and engaging.

Will age nicely in the next 20 to 30 years.

Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.

I had it all by itself as a dessert.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

Pleasure to the max. Only thing making this better would be 50 more years of age. — a day ago

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 1986

This is what classic Bordeaux is all about. Perfume of tobacco, leather and cassis gives way to fully resolved tannins in the palate. Good acidity, leather, tobacco and cassis/currants on the palate finish super long. Haut Brion is always amazing and this bottle is definitely near or at its peak. — a day ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

Just perfect whether a 1/2 or a full bottle. Primary taste of white flowers, lychee, peach and pineapple. Perfect acidity, bitterness and off sweet. Now 10 to 15 years waiting for these secondary tastes to develop. Quite a challenge to not touch something this good earlier. — 2 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

WOTN without a doubt! Bottle empty in 30 minutes or so, what a beauty this great aged Sauternes. And I think this wine has at least a decade to stay on this level. — 8 days ago

Château Haut-Bailly

Pessac-Léognan Red Bordeaux Blend 2003

This wine completes my ‘01 - ‘04 vertical and was the best of the four! Not sure what wine others were drinking but this rocked!

45+ minute decant. Dark red color with a brownish rim. Nose had massive cedar and dark cherries. Medium plus depth filled with wood, graphite, licorice, and cherries. Refined and very elegant texture. Close to prime drinking age, but has some years left. Medium finish.

Miss London and these great Bordeaux. I need to reduce the Napa Cab in my cellar more in favor of these.

Terrific nose and start, mid and ending let me a bit down. The previous 2 I had showed better so it might be that my tasting senses were in an off mode 🤔 — 4 days ago
