Today I learned I passed the French Wine Scholar course, so it is logical to celebrate with a French wine, mais bien sûr! I opened the 2009 version a while back, but friends brought this 2011 over to share.
A Sauvignon Blanc – Sémillon blend from Bordeaux, it requires a little food to round out and fill in the corners. Pale straw in colour, it has a nose of citrus and hints of honey, lemon balm and lemon grass.
The body is dry and has medium plus acidity with an elegant body and flavours of more lemon balm with dried herbs.
Delicate and tasteful, as it warmed in our glasses, it took on a deeper Meyer lemon profile.
WSET Very Good
