    He said: Chilled before opening. Crystal clear oat straw color. Nice floral aromas. Light melon and honey taste with a slight creamy mouth feel. Somewhat lingering tart finish that has a slight bitterness at the very end. A little bit dry, slight crisp acidity and a little bit of body. Not bad with the piney sandwich and just so-so drinking alone after lunch. This is clearly an inexpensive white wine that get classified as OK, at best. But at $7.99 it’s quite a bargain for a “Garden Variety” French white wine.

    She said: Mello and pleasant, this wine would go with almost anything. It is very easy drinking with it’s medium body and touch of creaminess. It is smooth and dry and ans a medium-length finish. Although nicely balanced it lacks nuances of flavor and has only a fleeting bouquet.
