Damien Laureau “Le Bel Ouvrage” Savennières, 2011, Loire Valley, France

16 Jan

DSC03220Ever had a Chenin Blanc that changed your life? Wanna try one? This is intensely mineral Chenin Blanc from a tiny Loire Valley appellation. Cellar-worthy, with an aging potential of 15-20 years. Extensive lees aging fleshes out the palate, which echoes the bouquet of apple, apricot and floral notes. Grab some fresh salmon, some stinky washed-rind cheese, and get down to the business of rearranging everything you thought you knew about life and the living of it. $52
