The 2013 Campo Alegre is fermented in 600-liter oak barrels (one third) and the rest in inox and it’s pure Verdejo, clean and subtle with citric notes of orange rind and grapefruit, fresh and balanced. Drink now-2016. Burdigala is the name of the joint-venture between Michel Rolland and the Lurton brothers.

Light, green-tinged yellow. High-pitched citrus and orchard fruit aromas show very good clarity and a hint of jasmine. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering juicy pear and Meyer lemon flavors and a hint of tarragon. Closes dry and spicy, with good lift and floral persistence.”

Mild aromas of lime tropical fruit and orange.  The flavor is also mild with lots of acidity and medium body.  It is pleasant but quite simple.
