Sauternes, Graves

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Dark gold in color.

Beautiful nose of lemons, citrus, spices, honey, butterscotch, carmel, hazelnut, mango, apricot and minerals.

Full bodied, buttery and bold, with high acidity and nice legs.

Sweet on the palate with citrus, lemon grind, oranges, honey, peaches, nuts, apricots and Mediterranean spices.

Long finish with honey suckle and spices.

This first growth sweet wine is a delicious one from Bordeaux. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. Big and bold, sweet and well balanced.

This one can be aged for a long long time, although it is so yummy now.

This 2011 vintage was magnificent in Sauternes. Tasty, complex and delicious. I loved it.

Robert Parker 95 points.

A blend of 95% Sémillon, 3% Muscadelle and 2% Sauvignon Blanc.

14% alcohol by volume.

98 points.

Château Lafaurie-Peyraguey

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2001

先日の飲み残しのシャトー・ラフォリ・ペラゲ2001さん。ソーテルヌの当たり年とあってこの子もWA96点。3日目にとても良くなって、香りの力強さは薄らいだけど、トロリと甘く、それを支える適度な酸味。香りは砂糖漬けのパイナップル、桃、紅茶、スミレ?、カラメル、白い花。仕事の疲れも和らぐ。 — 13 days ago
