Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2009

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.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Château Magneau

Cuvée Julien Graves 2014

2014 vintage. The website being very vague, the information is coming from other sources. A Sémillon (60%) and Sauvignon Blanc (40%) blend from selected parcels vinified completely in wood. Note that this estate produces more white than red, with 25 hectares out of 40 planted with white grapes. Brilliant light golden yellow. Exotic fruits and white peach with a toasted hint. Lightweight in alcohol (abv. 12,5%) but intense flavour of ripe pineapple and peach with crisp acidity and good length. Not particularly complex but attractive and probably at its peak. — 22 days ago

Château Nicot

Entre-Deux-Mers 2019

A touch of Muscadelle accents the floral qualities of this traditional Bordeaux white. 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. — 12 hours ago

Epic. 62% Sauv Blanc, 23% Semillon, 15% Chard (by weight) co-fermented in neutral oak. Mouth watering acids beautifully tempered with barrel texture. Bright green fruit with undertones of acacia honey and yeasty character. I’m all in with this wine. — 21 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

WOTN without a doubt! Bottle empty in 30 minutes or so, what a beauty this great aged Sauternes. And I think this wine has at least a decade to stay on this level. — 2 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

There is wine and then there is WINE. Sheer perfection just like the 2009, the 2001, the ... 1921 and yes the 2015. Just bow and be grateful. And yes forget you got some for the next 15 years. Tremendous. — 15 days ago

Château Climens

Asphodele Sec Sémillon 2018

100% Semillon. Star bright yellow gold. Inviting nose of baked quince and dried yellow flowers. Complex medium-bodied palate echoes the nose adding layers of dried pineapple (without the sugar), lanolin, and tennis shoes. Medium minus acidity means this wine can sit with spicier fare than the typical Bordeaux, but still hold its own with traditional “white wine” fare. Moderate finish. With no Sauvignon Blanc this is not your typical Bordeaux Blanc. The extra weight and lower acidity means you can take it to more “Chardonnay-ish” places than usual. Southwest Asian fare did well for me. Drink now through 2025. — 19 days ago

Château Pape Clément

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

15’ Château Pepe Clement. Should’ve decanted this for sometime. 15 needs a few more years in bottle. That being said… Petro soon opens up to this magnificent bottling. Orange blossom, pineapple, Honeysuckle. Zesty acidity. All spring out of the glass. — 23 days ago
