L'Ecole No. 41

Columbia Valley Sémillon 2016

A benchmark version for this varietal, and haven’t had it for awhile... A slightly golden yellow, excellent clarity. Floral, grass, perfume, ripe peach notes in nose. Peach and lemon flavors, slight skin astringency on finish, rounded mouthfeel, good acidity with dried apricot in aftertaste. Really good value — 13 days ago

Crawford River

Hently Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Very pale lemon in colour. From Henty Delectable not Hently. On the south coast of Victoria. Very different from the SSB Blends from Margaret River which are probably regarded as the benchmark for this blend in Australia. This wine is more peachy, less grassy, less acid and more fulsome in the mouth. Beautifully made and very moreish. No more cellaring required. Drink now. Crawford River is better known for its excellent Rieslings. — 2 days ago

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2013

Disaster for reds but great vintage for Sauternes. I always found 01, 05, 10 a bit heavy to drink now but this is refreshing and has beautiful acidity. One of my favorite Sauternes vintages. — 8 days ago

Château Doisy-Védrines

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

A blend of mostly Semillon with some Sauvignon Blanc. Deep lemon color with concentrated aromas of ripe fruit and sweet honey. On the palate you can taste the layers from sweet ripe fruit to honey to nutty notes adding in a touch of citrus. Long finish with an elegant ending. A beauty from Olivier Casteja. Had this for Mom’s birthday. — 15 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2007

If somebody can find a better way to finish lunch then this, please let me know! A perfect balance of cooked apricots and honey. As usual, the crème brûlée didn’t hurt us at all either! — 3 days ago

Old Vines Patagonia Sémillon 2017

17.5/20 (93/100) Насыщенный и элегантный аромат с нотами желтой сливы, абрикоса, яблока, тостов и бриоши, ванили и лесных орехов. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью. Во вкусе преобладают тона яблок и орехов. Красивое и щедрое вино. — 8 days ago
