Masterclass with Saskia De Rothschild, Chairwoman DBR Lafite in San Francisco. Rieussec is another property that the Rothschild’s own. The nose shows; meyer lemon, green apple, white peach, apricots, tropical melons, ripe pineapple, beeswax, lanolin, green notes, soft chalky minerals, wet stone with spring flowers and yellow lilies. The body is full, thick and a little waxy. There is some pronounced white spice as it sets. Meyer lemon, green apple, white peach, apricots, tropical melons, ripe pineapple, beeswax, lanolin, vanillin notes, green notes, hint of bay leaf, crisp grainy minerals, wet stone with spring flowers and yellow lilies. The acidity is round & beautiful. The well polished finish is; elegant, lush and persists for minutes. Nice White Bordeaux but, needs a few more years in bottle to show more. All wines arrived weeks ago directly from the Chateau. Photos of; the intro slide to Saskia presentation, the Crown Room on the 23rd floor of the Fairmont where the Masterclass was held, the group having this Bordeaux before we started and one of the amazing San Francisco Bay views from the top of the Fairmont. Rieussec is another property the Rothschild’s own.

Gorgeous silky floral aromatics with a bit of body sweat coming through. Sexy jasmine and vanilla notes from a small part in barrique. Like a Viognier cream soda. Appealing breadth and mouthfeel. Yum.

Pale gold. Orange rind, lemon grass, wet rocks on the nose. Echoed on the palate with a medium finish of black quince (if that means anything). Medium acidity cloaked by a full mouthfeel. Great accompaniment to swordfish steaks or other savory meaty seafood.

Delicious blend- you get the grassy/acid notes from sauv bland and the silky smooth mouthfeel and fruitiness from semillion. Proud that I called region, varietal/blend, and year (I got lucky), when tasting blind!
