Light straw in colour with a medium+ intense nose & a fine mousse.

Positives: Grapefruit, lime, dried parsley and grapefruit pith on the finish. Medium body with good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: A bitter finish.

Interesting Point: When paired with Bergeron Classique Gouda the bitterness is diminished.

Drink now with food to mask the bitterness.

Tasted: 7 Aprl 13

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8.5/10 Total: 17/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
