Chenin Blanc 3-Pack

3-Bottle Sampler

Chenin Blanc 3-Pack 3-Bottle Sampler - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

It is often said that Chenin Blanc is the most versatile grape in the world. Capable of producing fine wines dry, sweet, still, and sparkling, and covering a fascinating array of aromas and textures from bracingly mineral to tenderly honeyed and everything in between, this noble cépage unquestionably deserves our full appreciation.
      At table, the Pineau de la Loire, as it is also known, truly shines. A natural companion to myriad world cuisines outside that of its home of northern France, it can easily hold its own from apéritif through dessert, refreshing and energizing all along the way. Cream, spice, fat, salt, and countless other flavors shine when paired with Chenin in one of its many incarnations, facilitating the job of the home cook, host, or partygoer.
      This Chenin Blanc sampler features three diverse and unique manifestations of the grape. Catherine and Pierre Breton’s Brut, from biodynamically farmed vineyards in Vouvray, is all about its fine bead and the zesty refreshment it provides. Downriver in Savennières, stony schist soils yield a more austere wine, defined by its breadth on the palate with a backdrop of unforgiving minerality. Aged in chestnut and acacia casks, this is Chenin Blanc from the history books. Finally, back in Vouvray, the Champalou family has crafted one of the variety’s most decadent and long-lived embodiments, a late-harvest jewel wherein only the best grapes, selected berry by berry, have yielded a nectar concentrated with dazzling honeyed goodness lifted by a lively acidity.
      Vive le Chenin!

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!
