Region: Savoie, FRA
Variety: White Blend
Micraster is the entry level wine at Blard, it is all from Abymes and shimmers with platinum hues. The nose is all lemon, salt, meadow flowers and river stones. Aged on lees in tank for 3 months it is very fresh and pure in the mouth, has some of the bracing sting of young Chablis but is lower in alcohol and finishes crisp and refreshingly dry. There are not many wines with this brace and perky zest; this would be ideal starting wine this Summer and at a very fair price too.
