Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before opening. Clear, lemon yellow color. Light ripe melon and citrus aromas. Quite smooth mouth-feel with lemon, cantaloupe and honey-dew melon taste. Excellent fresh crispness through the long finish that ends with hints of mineral and tartness. OUTSTANDING with the baked salmon and DELICIOUS drinking alone. No oak and an OUTSTANDING value for a good white Burgundy. Two thumbs up from me on this one and I would call it a Quality wine at a Bargain price.

    She said: Pale yellow color, clear, with zippy thin legs. This is an amazing wine! It sat in a closet without air conditioning in a southern California house for a year before we drank it and it was still excellent. With a very light fragrance hinting of grass the wine proceeded to be smooth, creamy and silky on the palate with lots of flavor. The finish is long, dry and crisp with a bit of tartness at the end. Delicious with the fish but even better with the salad. I STRONGLY recommend this wine at $15.
