It smells fruity, tastes fruity (crisp pear) and has a dry finish. Perfect for a spicy food, but not cheap @ $22.00. You should buy this wine as a pairing for some exotic Thai take out that you are having to impress someone with.

Domaine Gerard Metz is almost artisanal: Hand picked grapes, made in a rich tradition, following all of the rules. A lot like listening to Benny and the Jets or Crocodile Rock from Elton John's Greatest Hits. Songs I love because they don't surprise me, and on certain days, when the timing is right, I listen to them and it is just perfect.
