A Short-Sighted Fish

Mas Jullien Blanc 2005
Coteaux du Languedoc, France

A blend of Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cinsault Blanc and Terret Bourret, with some oak.
Yellow gold; honeyed sweet nose; good palate..full of variations, you get to taste apples, the Grenache gives it some nuttiness, and Viogner I love anyway..that's the honey...
The big point for the wine is the full finish..aftertaste a real nice to find this type of wine...and it will age...and needs a decanter or early opening.
Points 16.5
Meal..simple fare..Pangasius 'naturelle' and in breadcrumbs..with home-made potato salad.
Pangasius is a fish, native of Vietnam..I am told it has bad eyesight..which may explain how it landed on my plate!
