  • 2012 Domaine de Montesquiou Jurançon Grappe d’Or – France, Southwest France, Jurançon (2/23/2019)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind.

    Amber color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of dried herbs, apricot and sickly sweet honeysuckle flowers on the vine. Flavors of lemon curd, honey and raw macadamia nuts on the finish. Bright acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold. We’ll call it WIML93 but I could easily go another point. Expressive wine. (93 points)
