Straw green color. Citrusy aromas and flavors of meyer lemons and oranges, apple custard, and flower bush with a supple, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a silky, interesting, medium-long finish with notes of pear, lime curd, and earth with no oak flavor. A tasty and stimulating French white wine that is highly drinkable and applicable.
