2017 Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Blanc Les Moulins - France, Loire Valley, Anjou-Saumur, Saumur (3/17/2019)
-- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over 2.5 hours --

NOSE: lifted and "fresh" --- some petrichor; light pear; freshly fermented-ing grapes; tangy; sea spray; hint of something funky/dank/sweatsocks; seemed complex, and a bit tight.

BODY: light maize color; medium-light bodied.

TASTE: salinic; lots of mineral; high acidity, but not screechy; acidic pear/grape combo; 13% alc. not noticeable; paired extremely well with scallops (in sauce of brown butter, caramelized onion, caramelized fennel bulb, hint of garlic, and a healthy splash of this wine); Drink or Hold.

50, 5, 12, 17, 8 = (92+ pts.)
