95% Sémillon, with the rest divvied up between Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle, affected by botrytis.
This is a rather lightly colored sweet Bordeaux that exudes the apricot-and-earth nose I get from all of this type. The minerality isn't terribly strong, but it's nice just the same. The palate is sweet and tasty with an easy acidity and a bit of a tart finish.

This lovely, gold Sauternes wine is not as incredibly sweet as others, but it is probably in the range of off-sweet. The nose carries earth and apricot, which is influenced by a honey note but not controlled by it. Several tasters commented on the purity of the fruit and the wine’s flinty minerality. It's less dessert-y and more like a table wine, but still holds a place at each end of the spectrum. The mouthfeel is not so viscous and the acidity is vibrant.

Nectarine and ripe apricot on the nose round mouthfeel of peach candy. Needs to be paired with summer fruit pie
