2016 Bernier Chardonnay Val de Loire

Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming mostly from estate fruit brought up all in tank, the 2016 Chardonnay is a delicious, undeniably quaffable beauty loaded with notions of ripe citrus, lemon, and grapefruit. With no hard edges and a supple, delicious style, it's not going to make old bones but certainly dishes out plenty of pleasure. Drink 2018-2021." (3/2018) Wine & Spirits: "This is a clean, grape-scented chardonnay, not at all fussy. It could compete with a well-grown Mâcon, mild and soothing, an easy aperitif." (4/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "This crisp, simply fruity wine is light, bright and bursting with lemon and cris ...Read More »

2017 Le Coeur de la Reine Sauvignon Blanc Touraine Top Pick!
2017 Le Coeur de la Reine Sauvignon Blanc Touraine

A partnership between Rodolphe and Ludivine Marteau, the fourth generation to make wine from their family's estate. Of their 29 acres, 20 are devoted to Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting notes from the importer: "The nose offers an intense 'fruit basket' dominated by citrus scents with a note of blackcurrant bud. In the mouth, all is suppleness and elegance.

Grown in an area located between the Loire River and the Cher River and sandwiched between the towns of Tours and Blois, the wine shows the classic characteristics of the rich clay soils that are fortified with flint and limestone.
