Nothing better than inexpensive white Bordeaux with some age, the youthful acidity just fades away. The Dourthe (Thienot) is one of our perennial favorites.

Nose is heavily on lemon zest, freshly cut grass, cold apricot and steely minerals.
Palate has muted lemon, hint of tangerine, lemon grass and lightly sour green grapes.

Delicious!

My first Bordeaux bottle of wine. Not quite sure the right words to describe it, but suffice it to say that I enjoyed the German version better.
