Straw green color. Citrusy, sweet aromas and flavors of pink grapefruit candy, maraschino cherry pit, marzipan, and apricot and guava with a satiny, lively, dryish light-to-medium body and an interesting, medium-length finish with notes of starfruit, shiso, and canary melon with fine, silky tannins. A refreshing fruit basket of a white blend.

Other French white cover a broad spectrum, from inexpensive country wines to magnificent white wines from Burgundy. White wine is produced in many regions of France; along with Alsace and the Loire Valley, there are many fine whites in Bordeaux, dry, earthy whites made from Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, while Burgundy captures the Chardonnay variety like nowhere else on earth; top wines here include Corton-Charlemagne and Chassagne-Montrachet, two 100% Chardonnays that can age for three or four decades from the finest producers in the finest years.

More humble French whites include Vin de Pays d'Oc and Coteaux de Languedoc from the south. Made from varieties such as Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay, these are everyday. earthy wines to be consumed fresh with simple chicken or seafood preparations.
