Byron C Mayes

Pale straw gold. Shy nose of quince and orange blossom. Palate is bright (medium plus acidity) yet medium bodied and yields quince, citrus, and bright straw. Finish is medium long and with just enough bitter to make you want more. A “unicorn” in that it’s about as close to true Burgundian style as I’ve had from the New World. I’d put this against a good Macôn-Village any day. Delicious with food (natch) and as a crisp summer sipper. Upscale your KFC like I did.
