Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Tirecul La Gravière

Monbazillac Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2013

This golden sweetie smells succulent, with the nose showing honey, apples and chalk. The palate is pure dessert, with some razor-sharp acidity thrown in just to make us want to pair it with a steak or something crazy like that. It's all sweet all the time, yet does not even go near the “cloying” signpost. — 5 days ago

Château Ksara

Blanc de Blancs Bekaa Valley Sauvignon Blend 2012

My first experience with a Lebanese wine and I’m loving it. Starts with buttery popcorn on the nose, the palate opens with citrus, and the finish sways back onto the Chardonnay style malo butter. Very interesting blend of flavours. Quite impressed! — 10 hours ago

Matthiasson

Napa Valley White Blend 2015

I must say I was a little surprised by our visit to Matthiasson. It’s amazing the amount of wines, varietals and bottling’s they make in a extremely tiny space. As well, the old school wine equipment that produce some very nice to high-end wines. It’s amazing they pull off what they do with facilities so far from the definition of a modern winemaking facility by today’s Napa standards. This says very good things about their staff.

Also, my notes will not be as detailed as I like...our host was speed tasting.

On the nose, lemon, lime, cream, green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, steel/flint and spring flowers.

Full body and a little waxy. Lemon, lime, cream, green apple, pineapple, grapefruit, steel/flint and spring flowers. Nice subtle volcanic minerals and soft chalkiness. Good acidity with a nice finish.

Have most of you picked up on grape shears woven into some of their label artwork?

Photos of; their Estate vines, their tasting room, barrel area and stainless tank area.

Domaine de Chevalier

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2000

Always a treat. Dead on perfect bottle, amazingly fresh for nearly two decades of age. Warm, beguiling aromas of spice, roasted nuts, dried fruit; palate absolutely rips with citrus and stone topnote with coconut, brown butter, baked apples and apricot. Complete wine and absolutely delicious — 7 days ago

One of my goals is pretty much always to drink more Bordeaux blanc! That sounds fantastic

Château Haut-Brion

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1989

Soft Sauvignon freshness with hints of grapefruit and something almost tropical. A lovely rounded middle with real complexity and a hint of sweetness. Very fresh and refined. And super long. — 4 days ago
