Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
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.
Food Pairing Notes
Sole Meunière, Seared Scallops with Brown Butter, Wild Mushroom Risotto (made with Grenache Blanc), Pumpkin Soup, Roasted Chicken, Thanksgiving Dinner, Lobster Roll with Fresh Wasabi, Vegetable Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce.
