Not certain this is a “blend”, rather this is straight up Melon de Bourgogne, driven to the fruit edge, but lovely with oysters (as befits) and equally nice without them...delicate acidity and an unusual dark roundness, orb-like, mildly bitter flesh and some medicinal quality, which I think is this grape...wine for watching seagulls.
