Château Grand Piquey Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sauternes 2007

Member Review by Sweetstuff:

Château Grand Piquey 2004, Sauternes, 13.5 pabv; Dorothy Lane Market, Kettering, OH; Wine Warehouse, Los Angeles, CA. From a half-bottle.Orange with a hint of brown. Wine is full-boded and shows lots of sheeting; cotton candy and dried apricot dominate fruit, along with a little wax and melon; doubt if it will show much more complexity right now. Relatively sweet; mannitol/cotton candy; bright but ripe, moderate acidiy and fruitiness. Evidence of lots of white-wine tannins in a fairly tactile wine. Waxy melons here on palate, too.Simple, pleasurable, and fairly rustic Sauternes.. I'd get some at a reasonable price. Better with food. 86/100. A good QPR, I seem to recall. Cleanly made and will evolve positively in cellar.
