Touraine Chateau Gaillard 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

a lovely nose, slightly woodsy, warm, waxy and almost figgy in it’s ripeness yet maintains a tension bright, super zesty high acid style, totally refreshing with ripe berry fruit, and under-ripe green and yellow tones, a touch of green tea, some tree bark and mint notes, lemon and grapefruit fruits, delicious with a slightly herbal/medicinal finish that is just a touch dilute, 91pts

Not much on the nose. Maybe some light tangerine... *cough piss.. as well. Lightly citrus overall. Tasty white.

Intoxicating nose, floral, sweet with a molasses character. Flavors are almost savory, have good acidity, with zesty grapefruit and even some tropical flavors creeping in alongside warm spices. A very interesting pairing, this is definitely not a typical Sauvignon Blanc from my experience.

Lots of orange and melons on the nose. Flavor is delicate but a little thin and sour on the finish. I can appreciate the complexities but it's not my thing.
