Terra Sana 2001 Vin de Pays Charentais ($9.99)
This is a clear, pale straw-color wine, loaded with ripe, appealing pear and starfruit aromas. Very full and ripe in flavor, the first taste almost seems sweet, but bright and snappy citric lemon-lime brings it into balance on the palate. Quenching, good with food, another white wine to be drunk up while it's young and fresh. US Importer: Ex Cellars Wine Agencies Inc., Solvang, Calif. (Jan 15, 2003)
FOOD MATCH: A good cross-cultural match with bratwurst and sauerkraut and potato pancakes.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
