Vin de Savoie Chignin Bergeron Roussanne 2013

Opens like a Savennières, three hours later it’s creamier and rounder like a lemon Meringue pie. Ripe apricot, honey, beeswax, chive, acacia, lemon, cream Fraiche, lemon pie, stony minerality, richly textured on the palate with the right amount of phenolics and an ultra long and pleasing finish. Such a lovely wine!! Elevated acidity. Medium gold in color. — 4 days ago

@Ira Schwartz this is NV. According to Kermit lynch “All grapes come from a single vintage, but the wine is not vintage-dated” and unfortunately I couldn’t find a vintage clue on the bottle.
