Vintage 2003 | I find this Loupiac wine incredible good. While aging it keeps a fresh character, not showing age. It has a mesmerizing apricot smell and awesome balance. Really a gem in the cellar that gives instant joy when opening a bottle. Like this september Sunday when I made a Reine Claude Plums Crumble. A marriage made in heaven. — a month ago
Light lemon, peach, pear, honeysuckle, apricot. Lovely summer wine. This bottle not as crisp and bright as the others I’ve had. Added next day: I take that back, it’s drinking much more flavorful the second night. — a month ago

Lemon, yellow fruits (pineapple, passion fruit, mango) on the nose. This is rather fruity and inviting. The palate is rather round but dry at the same time. Strong acid backbone, good grip, lemon all along, good width, vivid mouthfeel thanks to the freshness and grip, good finish with lemon. It was served along a fisherman's see food plate (raw oysters, various see snails, prawns, langoustine, half a crab). Very good pairing. — a month ago

@Delectable This is the blanc, no red can be bottled under the Saint Macaire appellation. Anyway, most of the wines in the appellation are sweet, this is the rare dry one, and it's fantastic. 70% Semillon, the rest SB and Muscadelle. Drinking very well, pretty with a few years of age. There's a honeyed, nutty tone to the passion fruit, apricot and vanilla flavors. Creamy, textured and rich. Really good stuff. Relatively pricey at €18, but worth every penny. — a month ago
So good, prior notes apply:
95% Sauvignon Blanc & 5% Semillon; Entre-Deux-Mers AOC
Nose of freshly washed sweet, green grapes, lemon grass and green melon.
Palate is crisp, citrus biased, lightly tart not sweet, lime squeezed on granite, medium finish.
$13, QPR is just a crazy value play! — a month ago
Juicy pear, guava, and bright lemon. Soft golden hue. Smooth, easy drinking for a summer day. — 2 months ago
