Ordered a bottle at La Lucciola in Seminyak, Bali right before sunset! A blend of 95% Marsanne 5% Rousanne according to official records from Guigal's site.
Light yellow color with a whiff of honey, melon, sous bois and some hay on the nose oozing out during the first few minutes after pouring. In the palate good acidity and balance with the fruits, showing subtle floral flavors and some honey with a hint of pear cider. Little to no presence of oak detected (12 months partly in oak according to Guigal). Relatively light in the attack when compared to the more serious Marsanne / Rousanne blends that I am used to. No complaints from me as I am pleasantly surprised that this wine appears to be the perfect refreshment around sunset time during a hot day by the beachside (to me wine is normally a no-no in a 90°F+ outdoor environment) and it actually goes very well with the pan-fried Barramundi. Simple but pleasantly refreshing!
