A really nice full-bodied fume. A bit of citrus, melon and mineral.
Very smooth buttery caramel taste. Went great with seafood - Haddock, Mussels. Paid $12.99 for it in Cape Cod
Closed nose, with a little floral lemon/grapefruit coming through. Rich, buttery, oaky. Low acidity makes this a quaffer that would lose against food. Simple. $16

Sie entdecken eine intensiv rubinfarbene Robe im Glas und ein feines Bouquet von Beeren in der Nase. Lebendigkeit und Geschmeidigkeit bilden am Gaumen eine harmonische Einheit.
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.
