This wine has a French-like profile. Attractive light golden color, complex nose and flavors of brown butter, straw, and citrus -- something between fresh sweet lime juice and lemon meringue pie, though obviously more subdued -- and subtle oak. Crisp rather than unctuous, great with food. This is an elegant wine that does not tire the taste buds. - HK 2001-09-02
