Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2006

January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

Another wine that was hard not to get...quintessential Sauternes. Honey comb, honeyed nectarine and peaches, orange blossom. The acidity from this producer (being fairly low), in my experience, lends me to think these are best enjoyed on the younger side (15yrs) as opposed to others than can go 20+.

Château Doisy-Védrines

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

I first have to note that I tend to like sweet wines. On the nose it had notes of ripe stone fruit and if you can smell honey it would be there as well. Now the tasting is where this wine shines. The “Noble Rot” is there in its full glory! The sweetness is not over the top. I happened to have this wine with a spiced pork roast with a nice layer of fat and this wine matched up lovely with it. Back to the flavor profile, you have the ripe stone fruit and honey notes. You will enjoy this wine. — a month ago

Lieutenant de Sigalas

Sauternes White Bordeaux Blend 2010

A deep golden hue with honey, peaches, and floral notes on the nose. This is a decidedly standard Sauternes, which is to say it’s wonderful. Sweet, almost to the point of excess but not quite, with something of an elegant mouthfeel. A little spice on the mid palate. Oranges, peach cobbler, apricots, white pepper, and honey. Long finish with even more sweetness. Not the most complex Sauternes I’ve ever had but who cares, this is too much fun to drink. — 16 days ago

Good. Don't think there's enough acid to take this into its dotage. — 20 days ago

Really good sauternes. A less unctous style - honey, nuts, a smoky quality. Full and viscous on the palate. Bottle #2 at Dan's. — 16 days ago
