2006 Château Laulerie Bergerac Sec

This is a great $8 wine that we found at the Bottle Shop of Spring Lake one day when we stopped in and they had a tasting. For the price, this is an incredible summer sipper, and I really look forward to this out on the deck this summer. The blend is 50% semillion, and 50% sauvignon blanc, and the sauv blanc qualities really shine through. Lots of pear and green apple on the nose, with more pear, green apple, lemongrass, and grapefruit on the palate. The finish however almost has some buttery, chardonnay type nuances, which is very pleasant and intriguing. For the money, you cannot beat this wine, and again, it will make a great summer wine. For the price, back up the truck and start loading up the cases! 88-89 points! Cheers!
