2016 Blanc "Les Jacquaires" (Colombière, Chateau La)

Chateau La Colombière, Blanc "Les Jacquaires", Southwest, France 2016

{organic} 40% Chenin Blanc, 40% Sauvignon Blanc, 20% Bouysselet Blanc

RIPE BOSC PEAR, GREEN APPLE AND SPICE, FRONTON EST BON

Fronton’s Chateau la Colombiere has long championed not just the traditional grapes of their corner of Sud Ouest France, but also the obscure ones. So it comes as somewhat of a surprise that this vintage skips the Mauzac and Len de l’El of previous years for Chenin and Sauvignon Blanc. Colombiere still puts their distinctive touch on this blend by adding 20% Bouysslet Blanc, a grape almost extict before they rescued it from a vine nursery. The Bouysselet adds just hint of waxy richness, while its partners bring snappy freshness.

Serving Suggestion: Claypot crab w/ brown sugar, sesame, & glass noodles. Tropical slaw w/ pineapple, mango, cilantro, & lime juice.
