Michel-Schlumberger Pinot Blanc 2009
We also opened the 2009 Michel-Schlumberger Pinot Blanc, La Bise, during the meal. "La Bise" translates as "the kiss." As with the La Vigna Proprietary white wine discussed below this wine saw no oak and did not undergo malo-lactic fermentation. Soft and appealing with a nose of white, spring flowers it tasted of fresh fruit, ultra fresh springtime herbs and bit of lemon peel. The wine felt good in the mouth and at 12.9% alcohol it was easy to drink. It was rather tasty with the lobsters.
Good effort in a soft, easy to drink style.
