Fumé Blanc

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

This is still young but drinking superbly. Plenty of acidity to offset the sweetness, very long finish. Aromas and flavors of pineapple, orange blossom, honey, peach, apricot, dried apricot, ripe pear, candied lemon, ginger, saffron, vanilla - so much going on in the glass! Exceptional wine with excellent balance of sweetness, flavor intensity and acidity. Has many years ahead of it but hard to resist now. — 19 hours ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1986

Orange tinged gold colour . Very fruit driven still , lots of yellow fruits , crystallised orange peel , clementines , vanilla , spiced apricots . On the palate quite rich and decadent , lots of ripe yellow fruits , apricot , peach and then mandarin and caramelised orange . Touches of honey , vanilla , creme brûlée. Slightly bitter caramel tinged finish , with good vibrant acidity, balanced alcohol , long and elegant finish . Tastes so young still , maybe having been recorked in 2005 has something to do with that . Drinking well now but will still be perfect in another 20-30 years — 22 days ago

Needs a good couple of hours to open up to opulent dark fruit with great integration on the palate and velvety tannins. Cheers. — 6 days ago

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2009

NOSE: apricot jelly…pineapple…vanilla cookie.

TASTE: peach, mango, apricot, pineapple, vanilla cream, caramel. Cooked peach (like canned peach juice) lingers — lengthy finish. Almost over the top! 93.

This is the third Sauternes I’ve ever had. The first two were crazy good d’Yquems. This was gifted open so I thought we could try tonight with dinner. Didn’t have high expectations but really pleasantly surprised!
Pairing really great with the salad I whipped up. Pretty proud of it actually; quinoa, tomato, cucumber, steamed broccoli, mixed greens, chicken, and poppyseed dressing.

Mooi fris, fruitig, mooie mineraliteit, wel wat hoog in de zuren in de (niet al te lange) afdronk. — 23 days ago
