Nice. Light and refreshing. Not terribly complex but very drinkable.

Underripe honeydew melon, lime and lemon mix with subtle white flowers. Great acidity, crisp, refreshing, wonderful summer wine! Chateau du Jaunay, Muscadet Sevre at Maine 2012. It doesn't pair with cheeseburgers and I don't care!

In the absence of oysters, pair with radicchio/frisée/bitter greens salad.

Great mid-day white. Crisp with some honeyed edges with really nice acidity. Massive QPR.

This is a very clean and lean French white. Fruit is restrained. Mineral characteristics are pronounced. Easy to drink but not wow in terms of flavor.

A very dry wine with high acidity. Clear and pale yellow, the aromas are light but refreshing with wet stone and lime. The high acidity gives almost an effervescence, with flavors of green apple, lime and pear.
