A rare bird, White Chinon (Loire Valley) is all Chenin Blanc, which accounts for just 2% of vineyard land in the appellation. You’d think something so good and so rare would be more expensive. Such a lovely white, and for what it’s worth my perfect style for a house wine. Chalky, apple skin, white flower nose turns to flavors of pear-apple, citrus, lemon blossoms and crushed rocks. Light and intense, this is an ideal partner for most shellfish.
