100% dry Semillon from Barsac. Coming from one of the great Sauternes houses, this has to be magnificent right? Of course it is. Pale lemon in the glass with a floral perfumed nose. Lemon zest, lychee, and green apple get the party started with pears and honeysuckle coming to play. The honey, the straw, the brioche bread, all so lovely and so deep. Such an exciting, ethereal nose.
Lovely is the word of the day here. This is a mood invoking wine. Soft but rich. Evocative yet subtle. The acidity is crisp and the mouthfeel silky. The palate displays nice orchard fruits and a touch of stone minerality. Very saline, very correct, and magnificently pure. Spring in a bottle. A very unique, fun wine and I cannot get enough. — 15 days ago
100% Sauvignon. Star bright straw gold. Inviting nose of green apples and honeysuckle. Firm acidity leads the medium palate which yields green apple, citrus rind, and a touch of birch. Moderately lingering, slightly stony finish. Sauvignon done Bordeaux style with body and brightness that makes a perfect pair for seafood, roasted poultry, or Asian cuisine. Drink now through 2024. — 2 days ago
A touch of Muscadelle accents the floral qualities of this traditional Bordeaux white blend. (Balanced amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon). Nicely perfumed nose of pear, tropical fruits, grass and wet stones. Melon, white peach, lemon and mineral flavors on the pallet. Beautiful balance, texture and acidity. Fantastic food wine. — 5 days ago
Do you see a commin thread in my feed? I do, non-aromatic, fleshy/dense white wines that pair amazingly with food.
I've had other bottles of this wine which I've enjoyed more, but this still very good. — 22 days ago
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.

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. — a day ago
Lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Continuing to the palate, there's additionally honeydew, yellow apple, and a walk through my herb garden. This is an Okanagan semillon that I really enjoy... I've put some Okanagan semillon in the cellar over the years, and one day I'll see how they do with age on them and we'll see what fighting over vineyards really yields. — 16 days ago
My first experience with one of Musar’s Rosés and I’ve got to say that it reminds me a lot of their Blanc but with a kiss of red fruit…which, in a sense, is exactly how this wine is made. Popped and poured; consumed over two hours. Served just a touch below cellar temp but it warmed in the glass. The wine presents as a sort of pale copper color. On the nose, a rather fascinating array of fruit including strawberry, watermelon, bing cherry, grapefruit, and generic tropical fruit. On the palate, I’m reminded more of Rainier cherries with kiwi, lemon, lanolin and almond skin. A rather fabulous body with wonderful texture…not too unlike LdH’s Tondonia Rosado, actually. Medium- tannin and medium+ acid. The finish is long and satisfying. No doubt, this is a very nerdy rosé and one that I look forward to experiencing more often! FWIW, Delectable misidentifies this as a blend of Chardonnay, Semillon and Cinsault when in fact this is Obaideh, Merwah and Cinsault. — 4 days ago
