For me this wine is totally win-win: cheap, lean, old world white. Zesty lemon and under ripe green pear. Slate and a nice high acidity, texture on the tongue.

Dry but fruity, light and unoaked. Delightful on a hot summer day. #AOC #languedoc

While it’s by no means an offensive bottle I find it difficult to say anything overwhelming positive about this wine. I know that similar sentiments are somewhat inherent when it comes to this grape; I just thought I would give it the benefit of the doubt. In all likelihood I won’t buy this again but if easy drinking dry whites are your thing I think this bottle has great value. Personally, I prefer something a little more characterful and challenging.
