la folle blanche

This week were extremely and sweltering hot weather. We've got evening shower today. Phew! It's still hot, but little cooler tonight. I've opened a white wine tonight, La folle blanche. One of Marc Pesnot's wine. He makes nice wines in Loire. The variety was Gros plant(made from 60 years old trees). Usually, it's said that this grape tend to be very acidy. but this wasn't. nice citrus flavor, and honey. and nice balanced acidy and little bitterness. His wines are getting nicer year by year. I don't believe why this wine is a vin de table!!!
