Chris Blanchard, MS
A veritable fruit salad in the nose, with cantaloupe, grapefruit, apples, pears and nectarine. Hints of potpourri, lychee, rose petal, orange peel and cold cream. Plenty of ripe fruit in the mouth, with white peach, kumquat, kiwi and nectarine. Rich and vibrant, lush and fruity with a slight taste of fresh herbs, like tarragon and chervil. Medium bodied, with moderate acidity, it finishes long and fruity with lychee nut and perfume. This Pinot Blanc would work best as an aperitif wine or as a savory dessert wine.
A great finish with strawberry shortcake and a sprinkle of basil, or as a starter paired with a summery cold pasta salad.
