100% dry Semillon from Barsac. Coming from one of the great Sauternes houses, this has to be magnificent right? Of course it is. Pale lemon in the glass with a floral perfumed nose. Lemon zest, lychee, and green apple get the party started with pears and honeysuckle coming to play. The honey, the straw, the brioche bread, all so lovely and so deep. Such an exciting, ethereal nose.
Lovely is the word of the day here. This is a mood invoking wine. Soft but rich. Evocative yet subtle. The acidity is crisp and the mouthfeel silky. The palate displays nice orchard fruits and a touch of stone minerality. Very saline, very correct, and magnificently pure. Spring in a bottle. A very unique, fun wine and I cannot get enough. — 10 days ago
This is a delicious dessert wine from France.
Delicious right out of the bottle and much better after an hour of airtime.
Showing oranges, tangerines, honey, ripen apples, Indian spices, pears, light tropical fruits, peaches and white pepper.
Full-bodied with high acidity and well balanced. Rich and extracted.
Showing nice complexity with a nice buttery mouthfeel.
Delicious and engaging.
Will age nicely in the next 20 to 30 years.
Thank you Scott for sharing this with me.
I had it all by itself as a dessert.

I love wines from Chile because I never have a clue what to expect - oddball notes and new combinations of smells and tastes.
Molina del Ciego is Chilean Semillon and smells like soft Peachie O’s and sour tangerine Tang powder. Swerve to minty menthol and white pepper. Big orange tannins and celery bitters for a nice farewell. — a month ago
I don’t normally like pairs yet somehow this wine makes me think of a pear I like. One whose texture is not too too. And also there’s a lot of other fun flavors like white pepper and lemon so maybe it’s just a pear with more personality and we get along — 2 months ago
Lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Continuing to the palate, there's additionally honeydew, yellow apple, and a walk through my herb garden. This is an Okanagan semillon that I really enjoy... I've put some Okanagan semillon in the cellar over the years, and one day I'll see how they do with age on them and we'll see what fighting over vineyards really yields. — 11 days ago
Do you see a commin thread in my feed? I do, non-aromatic, fleshy/dense white wines that pair amazingly with food.
I've had other bottles of this wine which I've enjoyed more, but this still very good. — 18 days ago
