Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend

Château de la Louvière

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2004

I believe this was the second year Chateau Louviere used the Stelvin enclosure on their wines and this may have contributed positively to the experience with this bottle, considering it’s age and rather questionable provenance. The wine pours a sort of burnished gold color, slightly hazy. On the nose, the wine is a little funky with peach, orange, tangerine, lemon, yellow flowers, and wet ashy forest floor. On the palate, desiccated stone fruits and citrus fruits with some vanilla and a nutty marzipan-like thing. Medium+ acid, medium alcohol. Finish is medium+ finish, slightly bitter and slightly sherried but overall really quite satisfying and universally enjoyed. — 3 days ago

This sounds like the white Bordeaux blend.

Château Doisy-Védrines

Sauternes Sémillon Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

Deep gold. Nose and palate yield candied apricot, honey, white flowers, baked peach, and pineapple birthday cake. Perfect balancing acidity. Lingering finish extends the palate. Geez! And this isn’t even a Premier Cru. Drink now through forever. — 11 days ago

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 1981

#sauternes so sweet and balanced. Third of three bottles for my wife’s 40th birthday. We saved the best for last, as it turns out. Honeyed layers as this gently warms in a Burgundy bowl - caramel, marzipan, toasted almonds, some petrol, apricot jam. Tastes exactly how it smells with the acidity taking a step back from the honey sweetness swirling around a luscious oily mouthfeel. Touch of orange pith bitterness on the finish - lovely wine. Indeed it pairs well with Indian food but the force of this wine could have easily matched even spicier dishes. Beautiful wine and what’s amazing is it seemed this wine could easily go another 20 years. Good Sauternes is ever youthful. — 5 days ago

Y Ygrec Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2005

Comparison between 05 and 18. 05 is crushing it. Such a beauty showing that an oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc-Sémillon blend can be this good, rivals with those best whites in burgundy. If you buy newer vintages, please be patient. Wait till at least 10 years to open it! — 21 days ago

Château Carbonnieux

Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2018

Wonderfully fragrant nose of citrus, tropical fruit, and juicy stone fruit with a subtle background of wet stone, thyme, sorel, and verbena. Would rate higher based on the complexity and fragrance, but the finish is a bit weak. — 23 days ago
