Château de la Louvière

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

No formal notes. I have several previous Delectable Notes here. You could easily think this was new world with the passion fruit and tropical fruit flavours. The oak maturation adds a creamy textural note. No point in further cellaring I would say but an easy drinking wine now. — 6 days ago

Château Mouton Rothschild

Aile d'Argent Blanc Bordeaux White Bordeaux Blend 2018

Deep gold. Opulent, Sauternes-like nose of baked quince and vanilla. Bright acidity leads the medium full palate layered with citrus rind, vanilla, baked quince, and magnolia blossom adding a hint of balsam in the lengthy finish. "Elegant and refined" is an understatement! A wonderful Bordeaux Blanc for your main course of trout almandine, roasted fowl, or Tandoori salmon (to name a few). Drink now through 2027. — 15 days ago

Clos de Lunès

Lune d'Argent White Bordeaux Blend 2020

2020 vintage. As usual terrific value. 70% Sémillon and 30% Sauvignon Blanc. Exotic fruit goes hand in hand with zesty acidity. Very good length with a hint of vanilla. Should be even better with a few years of bottle ageing. Abv.13%. — 7 days ago

Château Guiraud

Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classé Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003

#AgedWineTuesday

Deep golden in color.

Strong nose of honeydew, citrus, lemons, honey, spices, melons, oranges, tangerines, tropical fruits and pineapples. A really beautiful nose.

Full bodied and buttery with high acidity.

Sweet on the palate with melons, red apples, honey, tropical fruits, spices, light earth, honeysuckle and white pepper.

Long finish with oranges and spices.

This is a fabulous dessert wine from Bordeaux, France.

Very complex with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced with enough acidity to balance the sugars.

Delicious right out of the bottle, good by itself, and even better after an hour of airtime.

Thanks Scott for sharing this with me.

This 19 year old is smooth and generous. Rich and extracted. Sweet and well balanced.

I've had the 2009 vintage not too long ago, and this is showing so much better. What a wonderful surprise.

Paired very nicely with the blue cheese. Drank from a 375ml bottle.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

96 points.

$40.

Château Moulin de Launay

Entre-Deux-Mers Les Ailes d'Or 2019

This white Bordeaux wine has a subdued nose, but traces of stone fruit and citrus do come through the mineral curtain. The palate is also laced with minerals and citrus, with a nice touch of salinity to add to the waterside connotation of the region’s name. The acidity is fresh and zippy enough for a salad, some vegetables or a seafood dish. — 6 days ago

Château Doisy-Daëne

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Quince-jelly, nectarine and orangepeel.
Honey, pepper and narcissus.
Varnish, lemon oil and marzipan.
Dense, sweet, peppery mouthfeel.
Powerful wine. I’m thinking blue cheeses.

Le G De Bordeaux Blanc Sec White Bordeaux Blend 2016

We chose this as the white option for our wedding. It's delicious straight out of the bottle, but it still held its own even as it sat in the glass for 30+ minutes (which we expect will happen when folks are mingling and dancing around at the wedding). As it warms up, the peach notes get even stronger. It's a really beautiful wine. — 19 hours ago

Château Fourcas Dupré

Bordeaux Grand Vin Blanc Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2019

Star bright straw gold. Wildly aromatic nose of citrus zest and white flowers. These are echoed on the medium light palate with lemongrass, orange rind, and balsa wood. Juicy, medium plus acidity. Taut minerality masquerading as the slightest hint of tannin. Classic BDX Blanc with typical balance of SB and Semillon that delivers the quintessential experience. Go traditional with trout almandine or modernize with fried chicken or Maryland crab cakes. Drink now through 2026. — 20 days ago
