Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 91 EDITORS CHOICEThis bottling continues to impress after all these years with its complexity and sheer deliciousness. The '06 shows charred barrel fermentation notes of pungent, smoky wood, but theres a great heart of citrus, melon and pepper spice flavors that makes the wine rich and rewarding. It's made even better by zesty acidity and a bone-dry finish.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 91Always a winner, the 2006 Fume Blanc Le Petit Etoile offers a complex bouquet of herbs, melons, figs, lemon grass, and honeysuckle. Fruity, with superb definition, light to medium body, and a clean, fresh finish, it should last for several years.Wine Tasting notesEnticing aromas of melon, pineapple, green tea and lime zest begin the nose on this Fum Blanc. Vibrant acidity and bright fruit flavors of kiwi fruit and a touch of grapefruit awaken the palate and lead to a beautiful finish with hints of key lime.
TASTING NOTES: The grapes for this wine were selected from the Alexander Valley, Knights Valley and the Russian River Valley appellations. The fruit from the Alexander Valley and Knights Valley gives the wine ripe melon and fig flavors, while the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Valley fruit lends lemongrass and dried herb notes to achieve a blend of balanced fruit and herbal spice flavors.
