I don’t remember seeing a white Bordeaux at the GO for some time, and the reds on this label, and from this importer in general, have been good, so I was excited to try this wine. I found it tasty and so easily drinkable.
The nose is lovely, of yellow and green melon and gooseberries, with aromatic floral / musqué character. On the palate, the body is light, giving the flavors – those in the nose plus some yellow grapefruit and green lime, minerality, slightly astringent bitterness on the finish – a nice delicateness. For me, this went down way too easily, and we had no trouble finishing the whole bottle. Highly Drinkable.
