Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc 2005

This is a second label Sauternes. Deep straw color. 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. Intense nose that features raisins, pear, vanilla and a bit of citrus. Just a bit of a floral note. Dense ripe fruit and honey flavors. Hint of oak. Mouth coating texture. Nice way to end the day. Thank You for sharing Ron B! — 2 years ago

Happy New Year!🎈🎆🎊

This is a pairing I’ve been talking about doing for a decade but, couldn’t find a bakery to make one. So, I had to make it. The Sauternes is a 96. The pairing is a 10

Everything about the Sauternes is married in the pineapple upside down cake. Old school meets old school. Clemens the second best Sauternes producer after D’ Yquem.

At En Primeur in 2014, we spent a day in Sauternes & Barsac…eight Chateau’s and multiple vintages. We component tasted at Clemens. Great day. The highlight wasn’t D’Yquem, it was component tasting at Clemens. After eight Chateau’s, we went to Guiraud to taste 50 more Sauternes in an hour and then dinner. When we finished the 50 Sauternes, I wanted to go to the dentist for a teeth cleaning rather than have dinner I had so much RS in my mouth. Tasted nearly 2500 wines in 6 days.

This note is being written the next day with leftover Pineapple Upside down cake and 2003 Clemens.

This has a classic Sauternes nose of heather honey, marmalade, dry citrus and stone fruits with nuts with skin & waxy notes.

The palate is super thick, lush, waxy with ripe botrytis fruits of dry; pineapple, stone fruits. Orange-tangerine, lemon, lime, grapefruit citrus, marmalade, honey dripping, coconut shavings, nuts with skin, candied walnuts, saline, white spice, caramel, vanillin, wet marl, soft but strong edgy chalk, molasses notes, fruit blossoms, yellow lilies & flowers, spring white florals, excellent, very round acidity, balanced, excellent structure, well woven and smartly polished finish that lasts minutes.

What a great way to end Christmas! From a 375ml. Well balanced between sweetness and tartness. Good flavor of honey, camomile, and fennel. Nice texture too. Probably gets even better with age. Nice WS recommendation. I’d buy more. — 4 years ago

9.1

Nose is just fantastic - Mediterranean notes of dried black olives, rosemary, thyme, and deep black fruits. Palate packs a big punch - in your face black currants, spice and salty/savory goodness. Deeeeep purple with smooth tannin & M+ acid. Huge value. — 7 years ago

Sauternes 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2003

Dark golden in color with a gorgeous nose.

Medium plus in body with high acidity to balance the sugars.

Showing honey, yellow apples, apricots, tropical fruits, spices, mangoes and honeydew.

Long finish with honey and brown sugar.

What a fabulous tasting sweet wine from Bordeaux. Delicious right out of the bottle.

This 20 year old is showing great complexity at this point. A fantastic sweet wine. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.

I've had a few different vintages of this wine and this is one of the better vintages I've had.

Gorgeous by itself as a dessert.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

96 points.

$80.
