Sauternes, Graves

Château Suduiraut

Sauternes 1er Cru Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2009

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.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

94 points.

Sauternes Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2008

Complex & layered with honeyed stone fruit, nutmeg & almonds, candied lemon peel and pinch of exotic spice.
Elegant, layered, elegant and barely sweet on the palate. This is actually beautiful. Honeyed fruit, butter crusted dough, candied citrus peel.
Complex, layered, elegant, with a brilliant long finish.
This will convert anyone to naturally sweet wine!

WOTN without a doubt! Bottle empty in 30 minutes or so, what a beauty this great aged Sauternes. And I think this wine has at least a decade to stay on this level. — 2 days ago

Château Guiraud

Sauternes 1er Grand Cru Classé Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2013

Color of liquid gold with a nose of apricot preserves, honey, flower bouquet, petrol, orange peel, and a hint of ginger. Good balance on the palate with a slick mouthfeel. A reasonable finish, but not overly lengthy. — 22 days ago

Château Coutet

Sauternes-Barsac Sémillon Blend 2014

A blend of 75% Semillon, 23% Sauvignon Blanc, & 2% Muscadelle. Golden with complex aromas, somewhat Riesling like, and adding a tropical bouquet. On the palate this botrytis rich wine shows apple, pineapple and honeysuckle flavors. Lingering finish ending with smoky vanilla notes. Had this at tasting and bought a few bottles! Will contine to age in the bottle. Nice! — a month ago
