Château Maylandie 2010 Exquises Esquisses Grenache Blanc (Corbières)
A youthful, pale straw color is the backdrop of haunting aromas of Marcona almond, dried lemon peel and hay. Zesty citrus notes on the palate are accompanied by hazelnut, baguette crust and vanilla. The vanilla continues on with the medium finish—a clear indicator of some oak influence. Round and succulent, yet balanced by fairly refreshing acidity.
