Charles Krug – Sauvignon Blanc – Napa Valley 

Charles Krug – Sauvignon Blanc – Napa Valley 

The nose is fruity and offers a slight concentration as well as a small freshness. It reveals notes of exotic fruits and citrus zest combined with small notes of papaya / apple and discreet hints of kumquat. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a fine acidulous frame, fat, suavity, a small roundness, a small juiciness, a slight gourmandise, a very slight unctuosity, freshness as well as a very slight tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of vine peach, juicy brugnon and small notes of juicy / ripe citrus associated with small touches of kumquat, apple as well as a very discreet floral hint (in the background). Good length.
