Sauternes, Graves

Château Doisy-Védrines

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003

This noble manor and its vineyards were once called Doizic, and during the middle of the 17th century, belonged to Jean Raymond, a Registrar with the Guyenne Borard of Excice. Tasted several vintages recently. Beautiful nose of ripe sweet fruit and complex spice. On the palate aromatic flavors of peach & apricot emerge with citrus zest and sweet spice. Still tasting great, sweet and fresh. Lingering finish ending pleasantly fresh and sweet. Good value. Tasting Sample. — 6 days ago

Château Grillon

Sauternes Sémillon 2009

Thick, sweet, syrupy nectar with a touch of walnut and a hint of pepper (from the Semillon). Beautiful amber color. A nice complement to hamachi crudo. — 12 days ago

Château d'Yquem

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1988

On the lighter side of d’Yquem. Nothing compared to 89 or 90. But still amber in the glass with good acid and very pure fruit. Just not as long of a finish or as intense of concentration as used to. — 5 days ago

Wednesday Wine Committee “Founder’s Day”, honoring those who started this tradition back in the ‘70s. What an incredible group and tradition they started!

Special wine...this was taken from the cellar of one of the original founders. Loads of orange peel, citrus, banana peel and some caramel. Not nutty, nor overly sweet like many Sauternes. Older than I am!

Château Roûmieu-Lacoste

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

Elegant, luscious but youthful so it isn't yet fully developed. Lovely pineapple and apricot, we'll balanced acidity but will gain depth with more time in the bottle — 19 days ago

Château Rieussec

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

An astounding sticky, nose of candied melon. Liquid pear and peach extract delivered on clouds framed by whispers of lemon and lime zest. Among the best Sauternes I’ve had, and the stuffing to improve for at least 10 years. Thanks, John @tavernsquare, brilliant as ever! — 9 days ago
