$45, 4 stars, 91 points, bordeaux, france, pessac leognan, Sauvignon blanc, semillon, VWTC
Last night we drank four wines at the 29th Virtual Wine tasting. Opening up with both a chilled and room temp serving of this Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon the group found the wine to be a pale lemon color with the textbook aromas of cut grass, citrus and dare I say- cat pee. Other aromas and flavors included peaches, algae (?), pineapple, grapefruit and lemon curd. The wine was dry with high acidity and a medium (-) body leading to a short finish. I think this $45 bottle is worthy of 91 points, slightly shy of the pros who went as high as 94. It’s delicious now and will keep for a few more years but why wait on this 4 star effort. Seafood or poached chicken would pair nicely. Salut….
