Tip of the hat to @AnthonyLombardi for his recent review of this. Glad to have run across it. Solid aromatics, clean crisp, orange blossom, tropical fruits, saline, sea shells. Perfect for a mellow spring evening. Reeaallly good!

I want to drink this every day. Fresh, great richness countered by nerve. Very subtle and elegant. White flowers, stone fruit, honeydew, cheese rind, minerals, almond, crisp citrus notes. Compelling in how refreshing it is

A textural wine with some wonderful and subtle aromats and a mineral tinge in the back.

Pale perfect onion skin orange pink color. Bright clean floral and citrus find aromas with red fruit nuances. Lovely and almost delicate on the nose and in the mouth. Crisp, dry and refreshing. It's subtle but complex, a beautiful wine better as an aperitif than seafood wine. Would be good with shrimp or lobster but probably won't stand up to grilled flavors.

This wine hits on all cylinders for me. Seaside Marsanne from Provence. Beautiful floral aromatics & lingering mango notes on the palate with acidity & texture to spare. A true stunner. This record is one of my true favorites which stretches the collected musicians due to the emotional subject matter. Another level of emotion has certainly emerged since Chris Cornell’s death. All great stuff on a Sunday.

Who says that Ungi Blanc won't age? Lovely fruit of orange, lemon zest and green apple with just a hint of spice. Juicy, slightly salty flavor profile with pear fruit. Slighly untcous finish.

Very light and wonderful. Tastes of stone and perhaps rhubarb? Bracing acidity. Reminds me of a French chardonnay.
