2017 Libellule Pays d'Oc Pinot Gris-Muscat

Libellule is the French word for "dragonfly" — and it was these colorful, winged creatures flitting through the flowers that came to mind when we tasted this vividly fragrant white blend of 80% Pinot Gris and 20% Muscat. With aromas of jasmine and citrus blossom, this joyous wine has a balancing acidity that buoys the vibrant flavors of lime, nectarine and apricot. Enjoy it with exotically spiced dishes, which will bring out its intriguing nuances.
