2007 Domaine l’Or de Line Chateauneuf de Pape – Score: B+ to A-
Would love to know how Herzog pulled this one off, and who is the negotiant for this wine. I found a lovely write-up about the winery and the name, anyway, on to the note (http://www.chateauneuf.dk/en/cdpen36.htm
The nose on this light gold colored wine is hopping with lemon, goose berry, mineral, apple, and white peach. The mouth on this medium bodied wine carries the nose, with white peach, goose berry, green apple, and mineral. The mid palate is round, balanced, but still bracing with acidity, and mineral. The finish is long with clean yet round flavors of apple, peach, and a hint of spice. Quite a nice wine.
