Not the best bottle of this I've had. Another reward from Total Wine for a long week on the road. Nevertheless, a nice deep Sauternes and a pleasant surprise. — a day ago

Château de Fargues

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1980

Whaaaaaaa?! This changed my mind and threw me for a loop for any aged sweet wine going forward. It was so damn fresh yet deep but light but heavy but...but...I do not even know but what a goddamn treat. We drank on the podcast and all agreed it may just be the most extraordinary thing yet. Honeysuckle green things but honey and honeysuckle and orange rind and roasted nut but it is all mellow af and good lord this wine. Never looking at Sauternes quite the same. It was perfect. Oh and then we tossed some cheese into the mix. Explosion of expectations and everything. — 22 days ago

Chaleur Estate Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

A beautifully balanced Chaleur Blanc with delicate sweet notes countered by some well appointed acidity. Finishes fast and smooth with only the tart acid lingering on. — 5 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1983

Tasted blind. Dark gold. Sweet and angular nose. High pitched. Notes of cooked sugar, burnt orange, tan spices. Lots of fruit and acidity in the mouth. Has decent power. Finish is a bit thin. Guessed 83 Clemens. Great finish to a spectacular lineup. — 13 days ago

Château Raymond-Lafon

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1988

Developed and now drinking at its best since I last tried it. It has very good body and length and balance. Raisin, honey, sweet citrus and zesty notes on the nose with raisin, dried fruits (apricot, peach etc.), straw, syrup and marmalade on the palate. Very excellent. — 6 days ago

Château de Rayne Vigneau

Sauternes de Rayne-Vigneau Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1986

Lucky enough to have been invited to pillage the cellar of an old friend and came out of it with a 1975 and 1986 ch Rayne-Vingneau Sauternes. Both wonderful but the 86 was stunning, everything a late harvest wine can and should be. Fresh herbal aromas of tarragon, camphor, menthol and almond oil. Honeyed dried apricots in mid palate with do much more . Clean mineral and mediciinal finish. Very lush and lithe. Truly a standard bearer. — 12 days ago

Château Turcaud

Sec Entre-Deux-Mers Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Wet gravel, lemongrass, lime leaf, galangal. A lovely, exotic overtone and extra length and richness on the palate from a big dollop of Semillon. As ridiculous a value as the Bordeaux Rouge of Turcaud. Literally buries other white Bordeaux in the $15ish range. — 10 days ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

Tried it at a tasting and bought one for cellar. Legendary wine, said that in the 18th century was introduced to Sultan of Constantinople's palace b/c of its clarity and called "mineral water from Carbonnieux", defying Islamic law. Pale lemon-green with pronounce aromas of tropical and stone fruits with herb notes. On the palate flavors of melon, mango, apple, green peppers and a crisp mineral edge. Medium+ length, balanced acidity, ending with a fruit, citrus mineral character. Nice, will age. — 12 days ago

Director's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Blend 2014

amazing 2014 out of stellenbosch- drinks easily straight from the bottle and very well for its price point, a great mime of a french bordeaux, with a plum nose and full body with notes of black pepper and currant, rounding this vintage out perfectly. — 5 days ago
