We have been importing this Gem for about twenty years, but not under this label. Most of you who have faithfully bought previous vintages of this wine would recognize it as Chateau Roquefort. Why Vignobles Jolivet change labels on us, Clyde is not clear about; in fact, I don’t think he really knows why. But, the 2011 is a bit richer, more viscous, and broad in relationship to the Saint-Jean-Des-Graves. This delicious Gem would pair nicely with such dishes as French onion soup, and Rizzo has told me this wine will be one of our house whites for the month. 12.5% ABV
Drink from 2013 to 2016

Incredibly vibrant,citrousy and crispy. A great opportunity to venture in the white Bordeaux world.

Additional Information:



- A rich, viscous, full-flavored but subtly-scented and botrytis-prone white grape, Sémillon reaches magical heights when infected with "noble rot" and combined with even small amounts of the aromatic and high-acid Sauvignon Blanc to make Sauternes, one of the world's most revered and longest-lived wines, and in the sweet wines of surrounding regions like Barsac. Sémillon's most famous incarnation is in the wines of Château d'Yquem, one of the world's most expensive wines, and one that has been known to evolve for centuries. It frequently dominates, but not by much, in the oak-aged whites of Bordeaux's Graves and Pessac-Léognan, creating honeyed and viscous wines that are unlike any others. Elsewhere in Bordeaux and around France it takes on a supporting role in the wines of Entre-Deux-Mers and the Médoc. While planted throughout France, Europe, California and Washington, Sémillon's role as underling usually keeps it out of the spotlight with a few winery-specific exceptions. However, the grape is allowed to shine in Australia's Hunter Valley, where it is used to make an elegant dry wine often called, perplexingly, Hunter Valley Riesling. It also makes some incredible dry, oaked wines from the Barossa and lovely stickies in the style of Sauternes.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
