Enjoy it well chilled on a warm afternoon
I'm no wine conniseur myself, but our son is a sommelier and recommended this particular French Bordeaux. A wonderful experience! Smooth and easy on the palate. A single bottle shared between two on a warm afternoon may not be enough. With the Bevmo 5 cent savings, it is a truly remarkable value. I bought two to try it out. Now I'm going back for the case.

Very Pleasant, easy to drink wine
Opening it up, I was rewarded with a burst of citrusy, fruity scents. I let it warm to about 51 deg F before I tore into it. It really benefits from that, I think. It was fragrant and fresh smelling with those lovely scents of citrus and peach, etc that you get from a good Sauv Blanc, which this is, mostly. I generally find SB too astringent for my taste, but here, the smaller percentage of sweet Semillon smooths it out into a fresh, cheerful drink. I am not good at picking out individual tastes, so I won't attempt that here. It is very pleasant to drink, however, and I highly recommend it. In fact, I came back to Bevmo to buy more, but, alas, my local store is out! Good thing I have three more bottles! The perfect thing to while away the afternoon watching back episodes of Stossel.
