10 White Wines for Spring

Great transitional wines for the season we've been waiting for!


« Prev Next » 5 of 7

Chenin Blanc is quite the chameleon, producing wines that range from sharp as a razor to sweet as honey, with everything in between- including bubbles. It's not surprising that it might be considered a wine for all seasons, the trick is finding those that are right for spring.

I'm really fond of lightly off-dry versions for this time of year, something that the Loire Valley really excels at, though I have to give South Africa its due. South African producers have certainly reshaped their Chenin market over the past decade and the wines are among the great values of the white wine world told today. If you want big value on a budget, choose Chenin.

Two to try:

2009 Domaine du Viking Vouvray Cuvée Tendre

2010 Raats Chenin Blanc

    I love the arrival of spring too and I think you are so right, you have to be prepared. A moment too late and you will be in the scorching summer. I am very interested in your selection, I will tell you how I celebrated Springtime last year was by spending Easter in the South of Burgundy and we discovered a marvelous producer called Jean-Pierre Michel a stone's throw from where we were staying, we loved his Viré Clessé "Terroirs de Quintaine", and his Macon Village just a touch greener that was such a perfect pre-dinner drink.

  • Why not a Muscadet to your shellfish, a Gruener Veltliner to your trout or a Sauvignon Blanc to your asparagus -- and a semisweet Riesling from Mosel or Rhine in the golden sunlight of May!!
