Lions de Suduiraut Blanc Sec 2021

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2021 Lions de Suduiraut Blanc Sec is rich, creamy, expressive and exquisite in its balance of textural richness and freshness. Orchard fruit, white flowers, mint, lemon oil and chamomile envelop the palate, while bright floral accents perk up the finish. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, May 2022) — a day ago

Château Doisy-Daëne

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Quince-jelly, nectarine and orangepeel.
Honey, pepper and narcissus.
Varnish, lemon oil and marzipan.
Dense, sweet, peppery mouthfeel.
Powerful wine. I’m thinking blue cheeses.

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc 2006

Have Sauternes so rarely. This one is delicious, even if we do have a sentimental connection to the producer. Perfect balance of sweetness and acid. Really nice. — 14 days ago

Apricot, peach, honey, a little thicker and sweeter than the best Sauternes but still lively and delicious. — an hour ago

Château d'Yquem

1 Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend

I believe this is made with the young vines of Yquem and is a blend of a couple of vintages. We liked it a lot. Good sauternes with botrytis and acidity that is great for drinks or also with food. We bought more. — 2 months ago

Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classé Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003

#AgedWineTuesday

Deep golden in color.

Strong nose of honeydew, citrus, lemons, honey, spices, melons, oranges, tangerines, tropical fruits and pineapples. A really beautiful nose.

Full bodied and buttery with high acidity.

Sweet on the palate with melons, red apples, honey, tropical fruits, spices, light earth, honeysuckle and white pepper.

Long finish with oranges and spices.

This is a fabulous dessert wine from Bordeaux, France.

Very complex with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.

Delicious right out of the bottle, good by itself, and even better after an hour of airtime.

Thanks Scott for sharing this with me.

This 19 year old is smooth and generous. Rich and extracted. Sweet and well balanced.

I've had the 2009 vintage not too long ago, and this is showing so much better. What a wonderful surprise.

Paired very nicely with the blue cheese. Drank from a 375ml bottle.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

96 points.

$40.
