Moulin des Dames Bergerac Sec 2009

This wine, a semillon sauvignon blanc blend from the Bergerac Sec appellation (situated to the east of Bordeaux), is really quite serious in intent.  Golden in colour, it opens to a rich aroma of honey, herbs, minerals, stones and peach.  On the palate, a viscous texture opens to reveal rich flavours of stone fruit kernels and spice, and a touch more than medium acidity.  The length is really very good.  Although it is a blend of 70% sauvignon blanc and 30% semillon, the semillon portion seems higher.  A very good wine that deserves to be taken seriously.  89 points.
