Chateau Lamouthe de Haux 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine is aged on the lees for about 3 weeks, which accounts for its round, smooth, and remarkably fruity flavour. It is ideal as an aperitif, or with fish, seafood (a must with oysters), and cheese. Best enjoyed young (2 years). Color: Gold with green highlights. Bouquet: Floral aromas and fruity aromas (hawthorn, grape fruit). Palate: Round and fresh, slightly pearly wine. Crispy and long final.

The nose is heavily driven by the Semillon. It's crisp, juicy and well balanced. Good acid and great fruit throughout. Very nice. 10/8/11
