    "Juicy and ripe, with inviting pear, quince and fig flavors laced with light ginger and honeysuckle notes. On the hedonistic side, but has the freshness for balance. Drink now..." ~ Wine Spectator

    You're going to want to wet your whistle on this delicious Guy Saget Marie de Beauregard Vouvray winelovers! Why? Because it's got seductive ripe fruit as well as honey, subtle spice and even toasty notes, all beautifully woven together in a stunningly bright balance. We say enjoy your first glasses with lettuce cups filled with garlicky ginger-chili chicken. Baked ham is a terrific pairing because its salt is lovely opposite the honeyed fruit of the wine. Mild to moderately spicy Asian fare also pairs well with those flavors. Or, let the wine's bright freshness be the foil for a decadent Peking duck with all the trimmings. You'll love it. To finish? A French Camembert cheese, toasted pecans and some quince paste. Et voila!

    Wine Spectator:
    "Juicy and ripe, with inviting pear, quince and fig flavors laced with light ginger and honeysuckle notes. Shows a flash of hazelnut through the finish. On the hedonistic side, but has the freshness for balance. Drink now through 2024." May 2018 (Advance)

    Winery:
      "Beautiful pale gold color with some bluish tints. On the nose, mineral expression of chalk and flint followed by a burst of ripe pear, acacia honey, candied fruits and lemon. The palate has a beautiful balance of freshness and sweetness with a silky texture."
