A bit lack of aroma, but relatively strong taste...

With just a trace of sweetness on the opening palate, the bold lime blossom, apricot and orange flavors of this Chenin Blanc have a jolt of minerality running through them.

Five years ago I selected the 2000 vintage of this wine as my "pick." For those of you who stockpile your back issues of Bon Appétit and Road & Track, it would be the Sept./Oct. 2001 issue of the Premier catalog. For the rest of you sensible folks, the new vintage reminds me of the old vintage - crisp, clean and bursting with zesty lime and citrus flavors with a touch of honey and flowers. Pronounced "so-moor," and made entirely from Chenin Blanc by the proud vignerons of Alliance Loire, you'll enjoy it whether or not your name starts with v-i-g-n.

"Please sir, may I have Saumur?" You will find yourself quoting this little twist of "Oliver" over and over after trying this wonderful Loire white. A floral nose carried through on the tongue with a touch of sweet honey backed by refreshing acidity and a bit of mineral on the finish. This wine is not only very affordable but the taste and complexity will surprise the "Dickens" out of you.

Crisp, with flint, lime, floral and mineral notes on a bright frame. Drink now through 2007.

A delicious strawberry/cherry nose leads to a racy, light body with minty, herbal freshness backed by a strong acidity. The finish is tart and juicy with more cherry and berry notes. Perfect with appetizers and cold salads.

This 100% Cabernet Franc roseacute; is a light and refreshing wine with racy raspberry and watermelon flavors. A hint of herb on the finish keeps the wine appropriately dry. The 2009 vintage of this wine was a surprise hit and the 2010 picks up right where the last one left off.

Offering generous candied citrus flavors and having ample acidity, this summertime favorite has just a faint hint of sweetness to carry it. Enjoy on its own or with lighter, summer offerings from the garden.
