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.

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

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
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
