Bon Courage Like Father Like Son Chenin 2011

A dry white blend with a fruity complexity. The Chenin Blanc compliments the fruitiness and the naturalhigh acidity of the Colombard. Intricated nose of tropical fruit, guavas, peaches and a hint of gooseberries, which lingers on to the palate.

Perfect partner to food, especially fish and white meat dishes. Goes well with seafood, pastas, and salads. Excellent as an aperitif on a summer day.
