2015 Chenin Blanc (Husch)

Husch, Chenin Blanc, Mendocino, CA 2015

100% Chenin Blanc

LEMON, YELLOW APPLE, PEACH. AROMATIC & LIGHTLY SWEET

This is a lovely, aromatic white from cool-climate Mendocino Valley in Northern California. Chenin Blanc is a tart grape that is often left lightly sweet to balance that high acidity. The variable sweetness in these wines can be anywhere from nonexistent and incredibly tart all the way through to honey-like dessert wines. This one from Husch is noticeably sweet, but not cloying, and nearly dry on the finish. It is highly aromatic with lovely fruit aromas and clean balance.

Serving Suggestions: A great match for hot and aromatic foods such as Thai, Indian, Vietnamese, Szechwan and Cajun.

2016 Chenin Blanc (Cederberg)

Cederberg Winery, Chenin Blanc, Cederberg, South Africa 2016

100% Chenin Blanc

APPLE & LEMON. CLEAN, CRISP CLARITY & ZESTY MINERAL

As exciting and diverse as are the many Middle-Loire specialties made from Chenin Blanc, it’s surprising that more new world regions and producers haven’t attempted to prioritize it as a distinctive showpiece. Fortunately, South Africa has long gone above and beyond to right this mystifying wrong. This gloriously bright, zesty gem has the combination of tart golden apple and citrus, refreshingly clean mineral notes, and energetic acidity that we cherish.

Serving Suggestion: Smoked fish (or ceviche) on rustic toast or rusks w/ capers. Citrusy Kalamata tapenade.

2015 Chinon Blanc "Le Croix Boissee" (Gouron, Domaine)

Domaine Gouron, Chinon Blanc "Le Croix Boissee", Loire Valley, France 2015

{organic} 100% Chenin Blanc

BAKED APPLE, FRESH PEAR AND LEMON CREAM, OPULENT

A Chinon Blanc made from Chenin Blanc! Say that five times fast. Cabernet Franc is king in Chinon, and Domaine Gouron’s typical work is no exception. Only one of their 28 hectares is devoted to Chenin Blanc. Though only a small fraction of their production (less than 200 cases made!), one taste will tell you this rare Chinon Blanc is far from an afterthought to the Gouron family. Rich and luxurious, with creaminess from French oak fermentation balanced by the sharp spear of stone that distinguishes the best Loire Chenins from the rest. Imagine if a rich Meursault had a baby with the best the Mosel has to offer.

Serving Suggestion: Rich enough to match continental classics from roast bird to richer seafood like dover sole. Has the fruit and acidity to stand up to spicier foods.

2016 Coteaux du Layon (Cady, Domaine)

Domaine Cady, Coteaux du Layon, Loire Valley, France 2016

{organic} 100% Chenin Blanc

VIBRANT LEMON & MUSKY CANTALOUPE, MIGHTY MINERALITY, SWEET, BALANCED.

Coteaux du Layon, a northern enclave of Anjou which takes its name from the Loire tributary, Layon, has gained fame intensely sweet, botrysized dessert wines nicknamed “Sauternes-Killers”. This still sweet yet impeccably balanced, non-dessert offering has what it takes in the realms of both powerful flavor and intense taste sensations to be counted as a true powerhouse. While it can be (and should be, on occasion) paired with desserts, its richness, complexity and elegance makes it a treat in its own right.

Serving Suggestion: Pungent cheeses – creamy goat’s milk or otherwise. Tangy, fruit-based deserts w/ citrus, pear, or apple.

2016 Saumur Blanc (Duveau, Famille)

Famille Duveau, Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2015

100% Chenin Blanc

Duveau Saumur Blanc

LEMON JUICE & GREEN ANJOU PEAR, SLATE, BOLD & BRIGHT

Though Chenin Blanc may count itself among the most immediately recognizable varieties, its Loire Valley range from lean, clean, and refreshingly mean (Savennières & Saumur) to expansive and resoundingly ripe (Vouvray & various dessert offerings) can be a bit confounding for some. This offering from Saumur, unsurprisingly, falls hard into the former camp. Racy and radiant, it brims with acidity, searing citrus, and white-fleshed tree fruit that will refresh the living daylights out of you! So good with buttery and fatty fare…

Serving Suggestion: Grilled rainbow trout w/ bountiful butter, white pepper, & ground thyme. Hearty, wholegrain toast w/ soft boiled egg & white truffle oil.
