Château Pape Clément Pessac-Léognan Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend 2012

$145

...a light gold color and is a gorgeously full-bodied, multi-dimensional wine with great texture in its notes of rose petal, honeysuckle, crystallized/caramelized tropical fruits, mandarin orange and honeyed lemon...this is another brilliant achievement for proprietor Bernard Magrez from this tiny white wine vineyard...Anticipated maturity: now - 2030.

Very expensive. Fun to taste. Very racy, SB character rounded with more barrel character than I expected.

Happy national white wine day to all. As if any of us needed a reason to drink a white wine today, this is as solid a reason as any! Nose of honeysuckle and lemon meringue. Entry that has a bit of acidity, rather vibrant, honeysuckle and a touch of Asian pear. White pepper finish with some gravelly texture. Definitely gonna see if I can find more of these!

When in the 50's, this wine is thick and actually seems to be quite sweet. Honey and melon. Mango. Honeydew. Dare I say it really begged to be decanted! After 15 minutes and closer to room temp, this wine turns into a beauty. Honey, butter, and melon nose. Honeysuckle, melon, buttered toast on the entry. Enough acidity but still rounded. The middle is stone ground. Finish is higher acidity. Continued to develop as the wine opened, but unfortunately this one was gone before I think it had a chance to fully express. Yes, next time I certainly plan to DECANT this wine. Beautiful wine but I feel as though I missed out on a LOT.

Gordon shared with us at OTBN. A nice treat but this is still very young. A little one dimensional...needs some time.
