Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1996

Open that bottle night! We’ve had this kicking around the cellar for nearly a decade and it was time. I’ve drank many Sauternes but have dreamed of tasting Yquem since devouring Richard Olney’s monograph (and Jeremiah Tower’s descriptions of Yquem bacchanals) as a boy—yeah I was a maybe a bit precocious.

Nose of muscat grapes. A brilliant medium amber, luscious mouthfeel. Mature. Honey, almond essence, crème brûlée, coconut, candied pear. The richness sets Yquem apart. What a treat. Happy birthday

Château Bellevue

Vicomte Bruno de Ponton d'Amécourt Monbazillac Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2014

2014 vintage. Opened on 18th Feb 2020. Cherry and moldy note. Apple and cinnamon taste. Bit of floral scent. High tannins. Long finish. For it as being an old world wine, it is considered has its own character. A character that mainly can be found in New world wine. — 8 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. — 12 days ago

Barsac 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1989

Gorgeously supple and engaging. Honey, lemon tart, bright mint, limestone. Intense and focused. Amazing acidity and drive but all so light. Gorgeous. — 17 days ago

Tasting group. My 5th, group 6th. Outlier in the group due to age and Botrytis/sweetnes/age but lovely wine. Butterscotch, burnt toffee. Creme brûlée. Broad, bit flabby. Viscous. Tart — 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. — 18 days ago
