Wine Review: This very pale straw colored white wine from Bordeaux opens with a musty pear and light lemon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a tart green apple with notes of minerality throughout. I also detected a touch of lime. The finish is dry and would pair well with steamed mussels. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This is a wonderfully fresh wine with a pale green, almost silver color. The aromas of lime, and pineapple are underlined by intense smoky, mineral notes thanks to the terroir of the limestone plateau. On the palate, there is a crisp attack of well-balanced acidity, nicely integrated oak, textured roundness, and a touch of vanilla to balance the lemon freshness through the long dry finish.
