Medium, straw color with good body and a subtle fragrance of peach, apricot, apple and pear. (One imagines a vinous version of an apple struedel, redolent of cinnamon and clove, maybe even a suggestion of frangipane.) Ever so slightly different in style from an archetypical Le Cigare Blanc vintage; one finds familiar flavors, but in a higher register, (that is to say, absent the somewhat sobering gravitas, some might say sombering buzz-kill of the austere Roussanne). Fresh honeyed aromas in this wine, extremely floral, with wonderful natural acidity, bright flavors, utterly drinkable and a superb wine for gastronomy (or gluttony). This is Springtime.
