A surrogate from the Loire Valley, this varietal is typically bone dry, and in my opinion, impenetrable. Not this example...
Nose displays apricots on steroids, along with seashells. Palate presents honied almonds, flowers, minerality and very little acid. Moderately sweet, but finishes dry. A nice departure. Drink these now.
