I searched and saw several posts on this in the past (different vintages).
I've been drinking this stuff by the bucket since I moved back to St Louis, but never posted on it.
Light, crisp, minerally, citrusy ugni blanc (this is actually a production of the Tariquet family, who make a really nice Armagnac I'm working on).
Great stuff for $7-$9, but I post now because this vintage at least is taking short-term aging surprisingly well.
It's taking on some light honeyed, musky noted that are quite attractive.
I had extra of this vintage from my wedding, so I'm drinking this stuff a year older than usual, and I'm really surprised at how nice it is right now.
I love this wine, but I figured it was the white equivalent of beaujolais non-cru in terms of aging.
The wine world is full of surprises.

Anne just finished a bottle of the '07 of this on Friday night. We've used it as our house white many summers (when we weren't using a sparkler as our house white, which has been the case of late). For some reason, we missed the '05 and '06, they just evidently sailed right past us, but this '07 was a wonderful QPR, and it would be very versatile with food. We'll be drinking lots of it this summer, particularly when we're down here and Atlanta temps soar into the '90s. Of course, Gruet and Cristalino will both factor in, as well
BTW, it would be great if we were able to get together at some point this summer for a few nice bottles, as we'll be up at our farm quite a bit. I'll let you know when we'll be up there, and hopefully it would work out with your schedule. We've got a heck of a lot of Pinots that we'd love to use to tempt you to our neck of the woods, though we'd also be happy to head into St. Louis to meet up (or meet in, say, Columbia -- there's a great restaurant called Bleu that might serve the purpose). Let me know if you'd be interested in popping a few corks together . . .

Absolutely. I can open up some good things as well...
This summer is a bit hectic for us (I'm teaching summer school, Claire is taking MCAT's in mid-June and the baby is due at the very beginning of August), so I think St. Louis would be best for us this summer, though we'd like to see your homestead, too! And not just as an excuse to get away from my in-laws in Glasgow...
There are some good places to eat and drink in town, but I would certainly enjoy cooking a gluten-free lunch or dinner for you and Anne.
Let me know!
I think I posted me e-mail in regards to meeting up. Let me know if you need it again.
