Not So Tightly Rolled

Impossibly thin straw, creamy honey, jasmine and nectarine with just enough bright berry.  Round but delightfully unstuffed and an exotic dry smoky touch confirms the ethereal nature of yet another Cigare Blanc winner.  In the mouth, the same tendencies arise.  Delicate across the palate yet round and full in the corners.  Buttery gravel makes up for any voluptuous floral or spice you might have expected.  A wine which can pose as a debutante in one look and an elegant sage in another.  Either way, it never gets obnoxious, balancing sophisticated mystery with outgoing charm throughout.
