2014 Pine Ridge California Chenin Blanc-Viognier

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A consistent, big-time winner in the value sweepstakes, the 2014 Chenin Blanc / Viognier is a blend of 80% Chenin Blanc and 20% Viognier (145,000 cases produced) is aged totally in stainless steel, has malolactic blocked, and offers what consumers love – big, flowery, fresh honeysuckle and tropical fruit, a light to medium-bodied mouthfeel, beautiful purity, texture and a long finish. (RP)" (8/2015) K&L Notes: Grapes for this perennial summertime value were sourced from Clarksburg, in California's Central Valley. Seriously quaffable but not to be underestimated—five ...

2015 Huët Le Mont Vouvray Sec

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Vouvray le Mont Sec is pure, precise and very flinty on the nose, which reveals a concentrated and elegant fruit with lemon and crushed stone flavors. Full-bodied, pure and piquant, with a tight and mineral structure, as well as a very persistent finish, this is a highly complex yet finesse-full Chenin with a great aging potential. I'd love to drink the 2015 today, although I know it will become much more complex over the years. The finish is enormously long and reveals fine tannins."

2014 Les Chancelieres Vouvray

This is a straightforward refreshing version of Vouvray Chenin Blanc. With a gold color, this wine is dry and smooth. It displays very nice citrus and fruity notes like ripe peach and green pear as well as flower aromas such as sweet acacia. The wine is round and fruity, well balanced and ends super fresh. A killer value in 100% Chenin Blanc. Picked from 45-year-old vines and then vinified in stainless and aged in tank for 2-3 months. Fantastic with fish dishes with an exotic flair and, of course, the typical meat and cheese starter plates.

2014 Sylvain Gaudron "La Butte du Trésor" Vouvray Sec

Established in 1890, the Domaine Sylvain Gaudron is now run by the third generation of the Gaudron family. It comprises 59 acres spread out over 50 little plots. The soils are limestone-clay on a sub-layer of tuffeau. This is an incredibly affordable Vouvray that belies its meager price, delivering honeycomb, jasmine and quince aromas. In the mouth it's explosive, with crisp apple, Mirabelle plum, minerals and honeysuckle flavors. Zesty acidity and a clean finish make a tight package, perfect for seafood, salads and your favorite curry.

2015 Pascal Janvier "Cuvée Silex" Jasnieres

This "Cuvée du Silex" is the reserve bottling of Pascal Janvier. The soils are flint-dominated and the resulting minerality is astounding. This is made from Chenin Blanc and comes from the tiny appellation of Jasnières due north of Vouvray. An unctuous white that's full of raw honey, chamomile, and white flowers. Delicious, supple, and an excellent companion to soft and hard cheeses.

It has the generous, waxy texture of the variety, the chew of the fruit skin, along with hints of lanolin that make it a natural partner to chèvre. Secateurs is Adi Badenhorst’s "second tier" from the 69 acres of unirrigated bush vines he and his cousin, Hein, own in Siebritskloof, on Paardeberg Mountain."

2015 Radley & Finch Chenin Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Chenin Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. Grapes were sourced from both bush vines and trellised vines primarily in the Agter Paarl and Swartland regions. Winemaker Thinus Kruger primarily utilized indigenous yeasts in a particularly slow fermentation to develop complexity. The result is a citrusy and yellow fruited profile with hints of spice and grain. It is ready to drink right now, but will fill out and add complexity for a couple of years.

2014 Mullineux White Blend Swartland South Africa

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Old Vine White is just a peach of a wine. It is fairly innocuous at first, saunters around for bit, minding its own business. Perhaps your attention is lowered. Then it evolves these wonderful aromas of almond, beeswax and just a hint of creme brulée. The palate is very well balanced with fine acidity, perhaps not quite as complex as the nose at full flight, but it delivers impressive, almost disarming persistence on the ginger-tinged finish.

Indeed, Originel is made without any additions or modern interventions of any kind. It is absolutely natural, a requirement enshrined by its makers and, as of 2007, by law for Pé... Read More »

Vines averaging 20 years old are planted in sandy schist soils where they are harvested manually to modest yields. The juice is slowly fermented to preserve fresh aromatics and the wine is aged in tank on the lees before bottling.

2013 Pithon-Paille "4 Vents" Coteaux du Layon (Previously $35)

In 2008, the famed Loire Valley vigneron Jo Pithon, his wife Isabelle, Isabelle's son Joseph Paillé and his wife Wendy, joined together to start Pithon-Paillé--a négociant not unlike those in the Rhône Valley or Burgundy. This botrytis-affected Chenon Blanc comes from 20- to 30-year-old vineyards in four villages at the center of the Layon Valley. Intense scents and flavors of pears and quince, this vibrant, earthy wine goes wonderfully with funky cheeses.
