Nice with food (pork)
Three and a half glasses
Agree with Juliet it is Cherry Water and bland. It is ok though as the second bottle for the night sitting in my office. It has slight mineral nose and taste. Probably not going to buy it again.
Cherry water. Great with food. Bland on its own. Quick finish. Despite its low acidity, pairs very well with food.
Found this wine on a recent cruise and paid 400% mark up! Great wine that goes well with almost anything. Very smooth going down and well worth the price

Production Area The Languedoc Roussillon spreads out over 4 districts in the south of France: Pyrénées Orientales, Aude, Hérault and Gard. It represents, by itself, 75% of French Vins de Pays. Since 1987, when vintners became aware of the potential of this region of clay and limestone soils, and started implementing new quality initiatives (introduction of new grape varieties, reduced yields, etc.), there has been a veritable explosion in the quality of these wines. “Les Sangliers” translates to “Wild Boars”, as they are known to roam this region of France. Grape Varieties 100% Chardonnay Vinification The grapes are crushed on arrival at the winery, and the juice is cold stabilized for 24 hours before fermentation in temperature-controlled tanks. The wine is racked and undergoes partial malolactic fermentation, followed by up to 6 months in tank before bottling. Color Pale yellow with a touch of gold Bouquet Rounded notes of melon with a touch of pineapple Taste A full-bodied wine with flavors of green apple and citrus, with sharp acidity Alcohol 12.5% Serving Suggestions A wonderful match for grilled vegetables, fresh seafood, white meats, and creamy cheeses.
