Our review: Light gold in color, this wine has aromas of peach, honey and spice with notes of grass or hay. The flavor profile on the palate is similar, not terribly pronounced, and accompanied by a flint-like minerality that extends into the rather flat finish.
Our rating: There are some individual characteristics about this wine that we liked, but overall we were disappointed. It lacks a complexity that we've come to expected from French white Bordeauxs, though we admit it seemed to improve a bit as we consumed our meal of chicken and roasted potatoes. It's certainly not a bad wine by any means, and we score it on the high side of Average, but we think there are better choices at this price point.
