This is a dessert wine made from Muscat a Petit Grains in the southern Rhone. Vidal Fleury is now owned by the Guigal family, but the winery is the oldest in the Rhone. Thomas Jefferson visited in the 1700's. This is an excellent value in dessert wine. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is pretty with apricot and blood orange and a slight honey note. Medium bodied. Good acidity. Sweet, not cloying. On the palate, oranges and slight honey notes. Long finish. A nice way to top off an evening. This is nice on its own and would work well with a less sweet cake or cookie.
