Domaine De Rapatel - G.Eyraud Rapatel Blanc 2011
Gourmand and delightful, this Vin de Pays du Gard takes the strict meaning of his name. This is clearly the country in which he grew up that spring, with its heat, cicadas, the ripening of the grapes. A great seducer. The nose is shared between a springtime freshness and ripe fruit, spicy, honeyed. Fleshy and frank, nice balance, soft acidity, which ends on some tasty notes of apricot and quince.
