Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2012

Colour is mid lemon to pale gold. The blend is 76% Sauvignon Blanc and 24% Semillon. Fermentation in barrel, no malolactic. The Savvy Blanc makes its presence felt with aromas of tropical fruits. Barb said Guava and she knows guava from when she was a child. On nose and palate. Also honeysuckle. Still very fresh - the oak has melded perfectly with the fruit. Acid is medium minus; the texture is unctuous. Have the last one in the next year or so. — 5 days ago

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Gorgeous. Burnt honey, dried apricot, smoked balsa wood, warm gravel. Full and rich, but actually not that sweet in the mouth. Great balance and a touch of bitter on the finish. So pleasurable. — 18 days ago

Chateau Suduirat

1er Cru Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2007

This 2007 is at the end of its drinkability, but still delightful. All kinds of stone fruit and herbs with floral notes and honey. It went downhill pretty soon after opening. — a month ago

Château Suduiraut

NOSE: marshmallow, peach, papaya, mango, melon, vanilla bean, custard.

TASTE: baked peach, creme brûlée, vanilla bean, sugar cookie, banana (very slight)…apricot…date honey…simpler than others I have had, but I do love this chateau. 93.

Château Climens

Barsac 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1989

1989 vintage. From a 750ml bottle. Oh what I would give to score this in 375ml bottles...! Nougat, brown sugar, molasses, marzipan, dried cantaloupe...it just goes on and on. 5.10.23. — 22 days ago
