Chateau Julien 2014 “French Kiss” white

Chenin Blanc and Viognier; 13% ABV
$4 at the Richmond, CA, store on 20 May

ChateauJulien_2014_FrenchKissWhiteThe back label of this tasty-sounding blend describes it as “crisp.”  Alas, it is not so.  Instead, it is quite fruity and sweet.  While the flavors are typical and quite yummy — yellow honeysuckle, juicy white peach, fragrant white pear —  I found the whole thing a bit cloying, without enough balancing acid by a long shot.
