Recommended by:... fresh apricot, white peach and floral aromas on this elegant wine. The palate delivers all of the above, with a hint of creamier weight, leaving a fresh and aromatic impression.

Tasting Notes / Comments:This wine from the Languedoc is gold in color and has an inviting nose of apricots and butter with some herbaceous notes. Medium to full bodied, it is rather forward on the palate. With a nice mouthfeel and good acidity, it delivers butter, apricot, and some lemon-citrus flavors. The finish is good with tart lemon zest notes. With the food (salmon), one taster likened this wine to a chutney but thought it was a bit overpowering. I think it would have been better with a mild curry.
