Jacquin Chateau Bergin Roussette de Savoie Altesse 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

88 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): ...Musk, hazelnut, orange zest, fresh fig, and quince present an attractive aromatic display that reminds me a bit -- as have none previously from this grape -- of Semillon as well as Chenin, a resemblance that even extends to the combination of oily richness with underlying firmness and faintly austere stoniness that emerges on the palate. The sheer persistence here is formidable, if rather bitterly marked by lime and orange rind. I would plan to drink this over the next 12-18 months. (4/12)
