Vins Auvigue Le Moulin Du Pont, Saint Véran 2013, Maconnais, France
Tasting Note: An aged white burgundy that has a tart streak that is ahead of its fruit character.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a nose of baked green apple, summer-ripe yellow pear, hints of gooseberry, blossom and vanilla baking spice.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied chardonnay delivers medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a medium-finish.
The wine has a creamy, buttery texture with a streak of green-fruit tartness running throughout the length of the taste.
This wine would pair well with seafood where tartness and acidity would serve as effective counter points.
Bottle Note: 100% Chardonnay.
