Les Hauts de Lagarde

Bordeaux Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2015

This is a great #Bordeaux blanc #wine ! #Organic and delish! 60/40 #Sauvignonblanc #Semillon.

Slight toasty bread, almost doughy with lemon curd aromas. Golden yellow color with a moderate meniscus showing glossy sheen. The grapes have seen some heat. The medium bodied wine starts with celery to fine golden apple core, and ending with pineapple.

Clos Sainte Anne

Cadillac Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Vintage 2005 - lovely peaches in smell, really nice bouquet with impressions of Turkish Fruit, vanilla and honey. Excellent balance with concentration and freshness. After 13 years this petit Bordeaux from #cadillac is a real treat. Made from 50% #semillon and 50% #sauvignon. Botrytized grapes that where selected after several picks in the vineyard. This elegant wine is certainly worth searching for. — 8 months ago

Château Turcaud

Cuvée Majeure White Bordeaux Blend 2016

Calamint, toasted coconut, waxy yellow fruits, orange peel, star anise. Toasty and creamy from plenty of oak, but there’s plenty of stuffing and acidity to handle it. As good as white Bordeaux gets before you have to spend stupid $$$. #turcaud #sauvignongris #sauvignonblanc #muscadelle #semillon #whitebordeaux — 10 months ago
