2013 Confrérie Des Vignerons Oisly & Thésée, Les Gourmets, Sauvignon Blanc, Touraine, France.
Definite flavor of Yellow Jacket nectar, funky and honeyish without being particularly sweet. Notes of apricot, grass and gamey on the nose. With a fairly short finish it has this sour/acid body with hints of wildflower honey and women’s perfume. Feels more suited to a French countryside picnic rather than the Oregon backcountry. Still wine, still good and we’re still more than happy to drink it!
Resiliency: 5/10 Funk is novel but threatens to overpower as the bottle diminishes.
Cannabis Pairability: 8/10 This is begging to be paired with a Diesel, try Sativa dominant Orange Diesel. All daytime, all wild, all pungent, these two make for some funky dance moves.
Affordability: 9/10 Another blowout item, the market seems to be inundated with this product at a great price. Buy now.
