This was the only white from the iYellow Bordeaux after work party.
This wine is a Sauv blanc. As usual the French do a great job of controlling the laws but a terrible job of labeling wines that the average person can understand 🙂
The wine is light in color with a strong nose of lemon and grass. On the mid pallet the wine has some strong acidity and a hint of sweetness. Some zest comes through as well. The finish is long dominated by citrus. It builds very nicely in the mouth. This is a complex wine with lots going on. I would give this a strong 89-90.

Robert Parker Jr. gave this wine a score of 90, but did not provide a tasting note. (eroberparker.com, April 2010)
A very pretty and layered nose that presents ripe orchard fruit, grapefruit zest and garden herbs with subtle toast, butter and coconut oil notes. Dry and medium bodied, it’s crisp with a vibrant acidity. A green apple note emerges on the palate; well handled oak adds complexity. Zippy, refreshing, medium-long finish. Enjoy with baked sole or lemon chicken. (VINTAGES panel, May 2011)
