What We’re Drinking: 2016 Cave Robert et Marcel Saumur Les Pouches

An easy summer wine: mineral with a touch of lime and apricot. A hint of fruit-sweetness on the palate but with grapefruit around the edges. Flavors round out a bit as it warms in the glass; also good the next day! A finish of apricot skin and lime. Screwcap: take it on vacation. Great by the sea with fried clams and scallops. RECOMMENDED — BSE
