Our review: Golden in color, this wine has aromas of tropical fruit and honey, with significant herbal notes. Medium bodied on the palate, the fruit flavors have a nicely balanced acidity and are layered on a base of light smoky wood. There's a hint of butter present. A touch of minerality is introduced into the lengthy finish.

Our rating: This is an elegant Bordeaux blanc, one that would pair well with most richly flavored poultry dishes and be much appreciated at the dinner table. We served ours with a game hen and herb roasted potatoes, a very nice choice. We rate it Above Average, nearly Excellent.

No taste profile from the winemaker found.
