Château Doisy-Daëne

Bordeaux Sec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc 2016

2016 vintage. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. A hot year for white Bordeaux, but still zippy and zesty with a bitter grapefruit finish. I would have loved to see some Sémillon in the blend, but a nice wine anyway — 3 days 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. — 15 days ago

Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend 2015

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is a beautiful one from Bordeaux.

Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.

Fruity nose with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, earth, tobacco leaf, herbs and black pepper.

Dry on the palate with black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, earth, wet leaves, herbs, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee, dark chocolates and tobacco leaf.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7 year old, from the great 2015 vintage, is drinking very nice right now.

This Fifth growth Bordeaux is showing nice complexity, with a soft and elegant mouthfeel.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours in the decanter.

Young, but already delicious, and will continue to age nicely in the next 20 years.

Robert Parker 97 points.

Good by itself as a sipping wine, and good with food too. Will pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

A Delicious wine that drank better than the 1996 I had 4 years ago.

A blend of 65% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and a touch of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Aged in French oak barrels (50% new) for 16 months.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

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%. — 2 days ago

Château Guiraud

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


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.

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. — 10 days ago

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 2018

Dan R

Very enjoyable, excellent value left bank red. Nicely aromatic, with red currant, tobacco and pencil lead on the nose. Medium bodied , tight and firm on the palate with excellent concentration and grip. Not an ounce of fat on this chiseled red. Glides to a finish featuring polished tannins and a kick of crushed rock minerality. 31 € on the list and worth every penny. — 9 days ago
