…pour their wines along with ours, and guest chefs to cook for us! Sounds fun doesn't it?
Good to see that the turn in French wine policy toward the puritanical hasn't prevented such creativity. Of course, licensing laws in the US give this a 0.0001% chance of ever happening here. So get your fix in France. The Super Camion de Dégustation was last seen at the evening market in Uzès...

Pear and floral notes on the nose
Medium bodied on the palate
Silky, more pear, with citrus accents and a nice tapering on the finish
For Sauvignon Blanc, this is a nice silky style with good fruit and a medium body. It's not racy and "in your face" with zest, but rather elegant and fragrant. There are many styles to choose from, but when you want the description above you'll find this to be a reliable choice.
