Intense aromas of white flowers and tropical fruits. Fresh and elegant on the palate and a hint nutty with notes of apricots and exotic spices.

Good god I'm in Indianapolis at a Marriott. The red wine list looked scary but there were a few white options that slipped through and I thought I could take a chance on Chapoutier. This is not a bad wine but it ain't anything special. Highly floral with a bit of acidity so it's not cloying. Thus must be their version of a supermarket brand. I feel lucky to be drinking it given where I am 🙃

Pale gold in the glass. Shy Nose of quince, white pepper, light honeysuckle. Medium acidity and full mouthfeel on a palate of quince, and white pepper.

Not my style of wine. Heavy with grapefruit bitterness everywhere.

This was a 2008 that just happened to notice in the cellar. Not high hopes, but it showed really well. Bulked up, flavors have started to emerge--steely peach, spice, flowers.
