Château Roûmieu-Lacoste

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Our #bordeaux guide said this would pair marvelously with medium spicy Indian food. We were doubtful but she’s absolutely right. Nice heady aroma of apricot, peach, balanced acidity and starting to show some of that complexity that age brings to #sauternes. It’s pretty amazing how well it stands up to Indian food or Thai which would blow away most other wines. — 25 days ago

More advanced color, nose, and palate then anticipated. Lacked freshness but there were incredible caramel, orange, roasted tree fruit, and honey notes. Structure was a little loose. Of course beautiful with #foiegras though. #chateaudyquem #sauternes #semillon #sauvignonblanc #noblerot #bordeaux #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2011

Superb, classic in all the ways it should be...perfectly gold color, a nose telling at first botrytis but then it gives way to more dimension with layers or orange marmalade, honey, and creme brulee. The palate reflects this and adds a touch of almond extract and a laser beam of core acidity. #sauternes — 2 years ago

Clear, stony, metallic anjou pears. A good wine friend died last night in Paris. He was a dependable member of our San Diego tasting group visiting his first grandchild and we are struggling with our collective loss. @Alec White loved Bordeaux, good cheese and #sauternes. Hug your kids and your parents this week. @Dan Blackwell @Vickie Beuerle @Max Kogod @Matthew Beckman @Bill Bender @Steve Anderson @Jason Berry @Michael Meyer — 2 years ago

Thank you @romo for recognizing @Alec White he was an intelligent, comfortable, compassionate soul and his passing was such a shock. I can only hope that he was able to enjoy one last glass of Bordeaux when he was in France. Cheers to him and the many positive memories he gave us 🍷
