Beaujolais Blanc 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: With its lemon colouring, this cuvee catches the light the light, attractively. The the nose sharply evokes freshness with some floral notes (hawthorn, acacia) then opens on to a register of generous fruits: white peaches, apricot and orange marmalad. From this very well-balanced wine, the freshness of the Â"noseÂ" is confirmed on the palate, fixed by an omnipresent alcohol. The aromatic personality is very close to that of the grape, resembling the chardonnay berry at the point of maturity, offering aromas of orange pulp, and white flowers. The medium length will allow the wine to open over time. Offer this wine as an aperitif , together with a salmon in a fennel seed sauce or a plump fish in a beurre blanc (possibly flavoured with aniseed or coloured with saffron), and a goat's cheese.
