Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc may not be the most popular or the most famous wine grape, but the good examples are seriously good! Lovely, fleshy/flowery apples and pears, a nice mineral – flinty streak, lemon zest and a touch of dough. I have always described good Chenin as feeling pillowy and I stand by that. Round and fluffy mouth feel but the zesty acid kicks it into shape.

The Loire Valley is the home of great Chenin Blanc. Be it Sparkling wine, dry wine or sweet wine. Appellations such as Vouvray and Saviennieres are without peer for wines that age. The value, even for the top wines is second to none.
