Tangerine on the nose. It comes through first in the flavors. Medium body. Very sweet, and low in acid. Some light minerals come through, but overall lighter in this regard. Aftertaste is a little earthy.

Overall, too sweet for my taste, and really just a single note. Not well balanced. Besides...I don't especially love tangerines.

Pleasant enough, missing some of the deeper flavors I’d expect of an Alsacian white. Nothing floral which is too bad.

Floral and fruity. (1 day later: the sweetness has sloughed off, leaving a delicious little wine)

100% Pinot Blanc
Medium straw yellow. Clear and youthful. Medium runny legs.

The nose was ever evolving in the span of an hour we drank it. Started off very reserved and closed, then showed white flower scents, eventually expressed honey comb, and wild honey.

On the palate, this wine is aristocratic. The fruit is aplenty but not show-offy: melon, grapefruit, papaya, lemon. Structurally in tact - medium bodied, medium to med plus acidity, dry. Round with no sharp edges whatsoever, with a hint of smokiness. After an hour, it gave up mineral profile - salinity, quartzite, alkaline. Clean and fresh finish.

If not clear already, give this wine a thorough aeration. You will be handsomely rewarded. Amazing QPR! 89
