From the bottle:
“Lulu B. Born in France, Woman of the World.
I began my journey searching for the ultimate noble grape of France; Pinot Noir. My wanderlust soon took me around the world, in search of my favorite Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Join me in a glass of wine that is rich, silky soft and delicious! Pairs well with…girls night in.
The Lulu B. Pinot Grigio has a rather subdued nose with light citrus and floral notes. This light-bodied wine tastes of citrus and guava. The wine has a little minerality to go with the tart finish. Overall, an easy to drink wine that doesn’t have a ton of depth but then again it is a Pinot Grigio, which at least to me typically seem pretty simple. My only real complaint is that there is no vintage listed. With the huge variability year to year based on the differing growing seasons, the vintage is really a pretty critical piece of information that I would like to see them add. It appears Lulu B used to include this on their labels, but not anymore. Bring it back please!
