Back in 1979, Kermit called Savennières “the best climat for dry Chenin Blanc in France,” and decades later there’s a strong argument that this is still true. Château d’Épiré’s Savennières showcases Chenin Blanc’s character with clarity. Aromas of honeycomb and lemon verbena lead to a palate with intense focus and powerful minerality. Experiment with varied food pairings with this Chenin. For example, I’ve found it pairs wonderfully with stuffed grape leaves and kabobs.

A good doctor prescribed the wine of Nuits-Saint-Georges to the Sun King, Louis XIV, when he suffered an unknown maladie. When the king’s health was restored the tasty remedy enjoyed a vogue at court. Lord, send me a doctor like that!
