By contrast to the Muscadet, this lush, juicy, wild honey and stone fruit smooched white is a thrilling temptress. With a full-bodied framework, offset by a silky texture and long, pliable finish, this gorgeous white is commanding enough to tackle a roast chicken and robust enough to romance pork and veal chops! Made by the famous Perrin family, owners of the most renowned Châteauneuf-du-Pape of all, Beaucastel, this wine is made to exacting standards and I cannot believe the value for money offered by this sumptuous CdR.
