Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château Coutet

Chartreuse de Coutet Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Quite consistent with my notes from ~6 months ago:

Nose has over-ripe apricot, almond oil, marzipan, meringue cookie and cold butter.
Palate has warmed apricot pie with extra flakey, buttery crust, sweet sand, white flower honey and mango.

Admittedly I love Sauternes and have many bottles, yet it's a rarity on opening and posting to the Community. We paired this bottle with a hard, smoked goat cheese from a local, Hudson valley producer, a solid match of sweet and salty.

Clos Floridene

Graves Blanc White Bordeaux Blend 2015

Tasted at least twice before as recently as August 2019. Previous notes apply. This was quite delicious with the small oak component adding perfectly balanced texture. Made for earlier consumption. — 5 days ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2016

A bit too cold and probably too young. After some additional air it started to reveal its qualities. Looks like a promising wine — 7 days ago

Arietta Wines lunch with owner Fritz. We were able to taste through some current releases as well as some reserve wines Fritz brought with him personally. A treat to enjoy these Andy Erickson wines!

Classically styled and balanced. Very reminiscent of Spottswoode’s SB. Floral with tart fruit and medium acidity. Lots of lemon-lime here but also melon. Crushed rocks. Vibrant.

This was in prime health at the tender age of 47. Beautifully aromatic and it tasted just as I imagined dry Sauternes would. A lovely curio for a school night - 1972 — 14 days ago
