2016 Magic- long ass finish, creamy, lemon, yes. It's what you want with softies and oysters-

A very nice #oldworld style of #melondborgogne The nose had nice intensity and restraint showing flowers, lemon, apples, and biscuit. The palate was ripe and rich but balanced well with refreshing acidity. Med complexity with wet stone, flowers, yellow pear and Meyer lemon. Yum! #lieuxdit #santabarbara #biennacido #california #loirevalley #muscadet #ctbucklinwine

Picked this up along with several other wines suggested by my local wine merchant as a potential "light summer white". While this may be an excellent melon (never had a Melon or Muscadet before), it certainly wasn't the light and refreshing summer white I was looking for and was not something that would be obviously good to pair with food (though I'm not a shellfish fan either). In any event, not heinous but not for me.
