This wine, a blend of Chardonnay and Gros Manning, forms a pair with a Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat blend from the same producer. Here, the style hails from the cooler southwest of France. Bright and crisp, it offers a hint of honey as well as good acidity cutting through to give a refreshing, lively aftertaste.
