Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1988

Today was my annual hosting of the Wednesday Wine Committee. There was 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert, all provided by me. Tasted blind, as always.

Birth year Sauternes. Drinking just like you’d expect a 31yr old Sauternes to be drinking, and maybe even slightly younger. Basically perfect provenance, the color has really darkened over the last 2-3yrs. Amber in the glass and molasses like up front. This checks all the boxes for Classic Sauternes. Honeyed sweet fruits with ripened pineapple, golden peach and nectarine with a touch of savory/nutty notes on the finish. Very lengthy finish with tons of complexity and life left. Wish I had another 1-2 bottles!

Old enough to lose the honey drop viscosity that I don’t like about this wine and nice acidity to bolster it this long. — 20 days ago

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blend 2010

Drinking this is like coming back to an old girlfriend. There still a lot of the reasons there why you fell in love with her in the first place. Drinking it and exploring the taste you can get with fruit and cheese is always an adventure. Honey and caramelized peach flavors with not a cloying finish in sight. — 20 days ago
