Burgundy, France
13% alcohol
Cork broke but I was able to extract it without much crumbling.
Medium gold color with brassy tinge.
If the fruit aromas were a little hard to pin down, the first sip was overwhelmingly identifiable as juicy apple. Backed up by a light touch of French oak, this makes for a pleasing and rather versatile dinner wine. Would be nice with roast pork with cooked apple slices or applesauce (which is what I prepared for the second evening.) For some contrast, try with chicken Veronique or maybe a Waldorf salad. A dry wine but not one causing puckering. Best on the first evening opened.
