A blend of 83% Semillon and 17% Sauvignon Blanc, the 2017 Rieussec is pale to medium lemon-gold colored. To begin, the nose blows you away with intense lemon tart, lime cordial, mango and quince notes followed by a second wave of floral, orange blossoms and honeysuckle scents, and then notes of crushed rocks, crème caramel and marzipan join the party. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is still very tightly wound with concentrated sweetness and a racy backbone to match, delivering layer upon layer of citrus and savory flavors, finishing on a persistent mineral note.
The annual Mid-Autumn Festival also known as the Moon Festival is celebrated on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. “May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart.” -Su Shi (Song Dynasty Poem)
Celebrate Vibrant Health and Fine Taste with Longjing Tea
Longjing (Dragon Well) is the most famous green tea in China. Longjing tastes sweet, mellow and rounded. It has a fresh, snap-pea and slightly chestnut and butter fragrance, a toasty smooth flavor with delicate nutty notes.
Each season has its pleasures and presents an opportunity to build health and enhance longevity. Enjoying sunshine and leisurely outdoor meals with family are great in summer. However intense heat and air pollution dry our throat, irritate eyes and aggravate feverish conditions and hot tempers. Rich eating and drinking provoke hangovers.
