Yellow straw color. Fruity, inviting aromas and flavors of tarte tatin, lemon bar, and snap peas with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, stimulating, medium-long finish with notes of pickled nectarine peels, green apple, and hint of limestone brook with no oak flavor. A soft and sunny French white that will be very versatile.
