I usually crap on the French concept of superiority with wine and food, but there are some great French wines nonetheless. Today, I figured I would give them a play, looking for a Pinot Gris (Alsace) but finding a Chardonnay.

I chose to have this with something spicy, and the taste amazed me as something different, which I couldn't quite place beyond some lemon pastries. So, when looking at the rear of the bottle, it was interesting that they mentioned white flowers, and I'll be damned if it didn't remind me of lillies. This wine has an interesting taste which is some combination of perfume (the smell of lillies), lemons, and something else that I can't figure out.

The finish is long and the body is slightly thick.

This wine would be great with lobster, shrimp, or scallops, as well as herb flavored poultry.
