Pale gold color. This has an exotic nose of lychee and fresh cut flowers. On the palate, this is well-structured (if a bit reserved) with stony saline flavors and gentle acidity integrated in balanced proportions. While this is not as excellent as the top Bordeaux Blanc, it is nonetheless a pleasant and enjoyable wine that makes a versatile pairing with a variety of lighter dishes. Drinking well now, this should hang on for another few years.
Golden yellow, not unlike Sauternes. Nose is full of ripe peaches, apricots, full round fruit flavors with a hint of oaky, vanilla sweetness. The palate achieves a good balance, with the Bordelaise terroir balancing the very full flavor profile. Modest acidity. A unique and pleasant wine. Pairs surprisingly well with caviar, where it accentuates the austere briny flavors.
