I totally thought this was 100% Sauvignon Blanc. According to the internet (so you know it's true) the blend is: 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 40% Semillon, and 20% Muscadelle. The Sauvignon Blanc does rule the glass for the most part. It's flavors are out in the front: ripe tropical fruit. Grass. Cat pee. But underneath and on the finish is something a little different. I just took a shower, so it's not me, but I swear there is almost a body odor note underneath it... not in a bad way. A sweaty smell. Also, there is an odd "grapey" note on the nose. Is that Muscadelle? Interesting wine. Initially, this wine tastes like 100% Sauvignon Blanc, but give it some time to open up and the other grapes start to show.

This is a nice Sauv Blanc -- good nose with citrus predominately, with some floral and just a bit of cat pee (about as much as I can reasonably accept in wine). The real reward comes on the palate where this wine is tart, sharp and not overwhelmingly full mineral. There might be a touch of honey as the previous reviewer mentioned, but I didn't really get it. Crisp finish, though. With regards to food pairing, I had it alone but I can see it standing up well to something creamy. Sherry-Lehmann has this one in stock often.

Great summer wine, floral, honey with a steely backbone. Fragrant nose and a terrific value at this price point. Wonderful with fish.

A classic Bordeaux Blanc offering a pretty nose of citrus and peach in harmony with refreshing acidity. This delicate wine is a perfect apéritif or enjoy with light fish dishes.
