Sauternes, Graves

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1990

Pure gold colour. Ripe peach , pineapple , creme brûlée. Very rich on the palate , lovely candied lemon peel , pineapple and caramel . Very long and rich with balancing acidity . At a lovely stage , though will last and probably improve for many years . Quite a stunning wine . In the end we enjoyed this wine over 3 days , it is still a baby really , not showing much development , should be great over the next 30 years — 14 days ago

Château de Fargues

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

16.5+/20 (90+/100) Аромат лимонного мармелада, абрикосового пюре и ванили. Сладкое, кислотность высокая и ещё не интегрировавшаяся. Лимон и карамель во вкусе. Молодое, пить рано, потенциал к развитию огромен. — 10 days ago

'Y' Bordeaux Supérieur Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2017

Still quite sweet but not as strikingly so as with OG d’Yquem. Would love to try some older “Y” for comparison. — 6 days ago

Château Suduiraut

Castelnau de Suduiraut Sauternes Sémillion Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2006

This is a beautiful wine that's sweet but certainly not cloying. The color is deep golden and the nose offers dried apricots and honey. The sweetness is more pronounced on the palate, but a zippy acidity balances the experience perfectly. The wine finishes long and satisfyingly. — 16 days ago

Château Doisy-Védrines

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

17+/20 (92+/100) Свежий аромат с нотами абрикосов, лимонного мармелада, мёда и ванили. Сладкое с высокой кислотностью. Отличная концентрация во вкусе и аромате, большой потенциал к выдержке. — 10 days ago

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend

Still quite sweet and mature- touch of caramel and lemon. A great match with ice cream and berries. — 8 days ago

Château Lapinesse

Cuvée Lapinesse Sauternes 2016

This yellow-gold wine sweetens without overdoing it. A honeyed fruit nose with an earthy overlay leads to a palate that shows sugar with a slightly tart side. The acidity is nice, but not ripping. The finish goes a bit flat . — 16 days ago
