2017 Saumur Blanc (Duveau, Famille)
Famille Duveau, Saumur Blanc, Loire Valley, France 2017100% Chenin 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.
