Domaine de l’Idylle, Cruet Savoie 2017, France
Tasting Note: A fresh, low-alcohol white blend bubbling with bright flavors that refresh the palate.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of white peach, lemon-citrus peel, pineapple, quince, flint and lilac.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied white blend has medium-plus-intensity, tropical-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by high acidity and completing with a citrusy, medium-plus finish.
The wine is straightforward with persistent fruit.
A versatile white to pair with many a dish including the scallops I’m enjoying tonight.
Price: $18 (I paid $12)
