| 2008 Bonny Doon Vineyard Le Cigare Blanc 375ml 12 Pack|
Light yellow. Peach, pear and honey aromas, with notes of green almond and dried flowers. Pliant and fleshy, offering fresh orchard and pit fruit flavors and a subtle undercurrent of smoky minerals. A dry, focused wine that will be extremely flexible at the table; the finish leaves mineral and pit fruit notes behind. I like this wine's blend of richness and energy.
- Josh Raynolds
BPale gold color with green-gold highlights, rich aromas of beeswax, lavender, quince and cardamom lead to a mouthful of Asian pear, quince and wild fennel with a distinctive note of minerals on the mid-palate. Silky in texture and perfectly balanced, the 2007 Le Cigare Blanc has a long, savory, satisfying finish. Its unique flavors will pair exceptionally well with fresh swordfish, lobster and roast turkey.
Dedicated to producing wines in a more unaffected, hands-off style, with a particular emphasis on the expression of terroir, or unique sense of place, Bonny Doon Vineyard created the 2007 Le Cigare Blanc from grapes derived exclusively from the Beeswax Vineyard in Arroyo Seco. Farmed in accordance with the principles and practices of Biodynamics, surrounded on three sides by wilderness and shielded from the cool Pacific Coast winds by the Santa Lucia Mountains, Beeswax Vineyard grows complex, concentrated and mineral intensive grapes, produced from deeply rooted vines. Our 2007 Le Cigare Blanc is beautifully balanced with a silky texture, evocative flavors and a long satisfying finish - keep this wine in mind when pairing molecular gastronomic dishes found at uber-restaurants Alinea, wd-50 or El Bulli.
