Live from Eriks Winebar - Part II

Well, you have to eat too... I start with a Swedish classis - Toast Skagen! And with that a young, mineral Chardonnay.

2008 Saint Veran, Dominique Lafon
A steely, fine, cool nose with notes of lemons, white peaches, grey pears, cap gun smoke and lots of sweet minerals. Medium deep and fine. A touch of summer flowers. Very nice.
The taste is as steely as the nose but the depth and concentration is greater. The wine fills the mouth with ripe yellow pears, lemons, cold butter and crushed rocks. It tightens up in the finish and express great structure and cleansing acidity. This is a great food wine!
