Light yellow/gold Chablis that's bone dry yet creamy textured. Nose projects lemon meringue and green apples along with a "sea salt" feel like a good Muscadet. Flavors are mineral-driven. This wine may open up more in a year or so, but for now it is a bit lightweight to be rated higher. Super buy at $10 on sale; would not be so at $15 or more. - HK 2002-03-02
