2005 Chateau de Rochemorin Blanc

WB Rating: 88

 
Alcohol by volume: 13.0%
Price at time of purchase: $8.99 (K&L)
 
Type: Sauvignon Blanc

Purchased at K&L for basically 1/2-off, this one is an outstanding bargain. Weighty and rich, yet the acid level makes for a crisp palate impression. Got even better with airing, showing dominant flavors of melon and grapefruit as well as a subtle tropical fruit background. Round yet elegant in the mouth, with a lingering finish. - HK 2009-02-13
