"There's a faint straw and toasted challah character in the background of this light and bright wine, with additional notes of dried apple skin, orange and lime zest, white carnation and chalky limestone. The palate is bright and nervy, with a great line of acidity that keeps the palate fresh and lifted through the mouthwatering finish. It's well balanced and delicious, with a lingering lime zest flourish."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Bon Vallon has a brisk and clean freshness leading into a wide spectrum of classic flavors including citrus, wild flowers and grilled nuts, with a nuanced minerality on the aftertaste. The succulent palate structure makes this an ideal food wine, superb with oysters, cream based pasta dishes, light curries as well as roast pork and veal dishes.
