Domaine du Cassard Blanc


I haven't had a lot of white Bordeaux, so I was excited to try this offering from Domaine du Cassard.

It was a pale yellow in the glass, much lighter than the golden hue of a bold Sauternes. The nose was full of white peach scents.

It was light on the tongue, sharp, not quite crisp but certainly not flabby either. It tasted of white peach, mostly, but added nuances of lychee and kiwifruit.

It was dry, with a nice pucker to the end, and a swift, decisive finish.

I enjoyed the wine with friends and some Thai fried rice. I had meant to get Thai Basil fried rice but messed up my order. It was still delicious.
