Le Frappé NV
Colour: Its pale, elegant colour leads into a pleasant bouquet of citrus read more...fruit, particularly grapefruit and orange zest. I t is clear, translucent and brilliant, with golden highlights. The foam is fleeting and white with fine, regular bubbles. Nose: A good mineral scent with citrus fruits and lime and subtle tones of lilac and mimosa. Taste: After a frank, lively initial impact full of freshness, the palate ends with a long finish of yellow fruits. Nice acidity without a trace of aggressiveness. The bubbles are invigorating and airy. Citrus fruits can be discerned one again.
I thought on the first sip on New Years Day, 2011, I was drinking hard cider and didn't like it much, but Mary loved it. So the next day when we finished the bottle while unChristmasing the house, I came around some to her way of thinking. While we both like are wine dry and I study wine more than she does, my nose/tongue is "stone" compared to Mary's who can taste and smell the wine's small notes. However, this is "My Wine" list so it doesn't rate "I love it", but only a male moron would not by another bottle or two when your wife loves it.
