During one of the warm days there was a great summer style white wine to accompany some swordfish, a 2015 Domaine Labbe Abymes from the Savoie region of France. The wine is made from the Jacquere grape. It was crisp and clean and very linear. There were hints of both lime and pine but the overall sensation and flavor was licking stones. After some exposure to the air some fruitiness did poke through, but that wasn't what was appealing about this wine. It was fresh and refreshing and a perfect match for the rich fish. The finish on the wine was not deep, but the length of the freshness in that aspect was impressive.
At $13 it was is amazing bargain.
