Domaine Gayda Vin de Pays d'Oc l'Archet Cuvee Occitane 2007

Member Review by hwikyung:

Write your review here, and rate the wine from 1 to 5 glasses above.Very pale yellow core with a wide white rim. The nose is bright and vibrant with honeysuckle, cantaloupe and rich pear. Once open for about half a hour this develops a wonderful flinty character. Once in the mouth, this has moderate + sharp acidity that gives it a real freshness. The richness of the fruit found on the nose is lost. Tart lemon takes over with hints of starfruit, pear skin and unripe peach. Very light and worn oak notes soften this out but they are hard to detect until the wine warms up some. The finish is long with lingering minerality and light honey. A touch bitter.
