100% Chenin Blanc from the village of Saumur in France's Loire Valley, this off-dry 2008 expels creamy aromas of banana, fresh peach and cantaloupe, with subtle, tart flavors of mellow grapefruit rind, apple and Bartlett pear. The finish is smooth and endearing, with remarkable balance and length. A quintessential reminder of the Loire's potential for outstanding Chenin Blanc, recommended for those ready to experience something beyond Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and other common varietals. Highly recommended.

A luxurious nose of tropical fruit and caramel balances tantalizing mineral notes and a snappy vein of citrus-infused acidity on the palate of this Chenin Blanc-based white. A surprisingly ageworthy example from a lesser-known Loire appellation.

A yummy Loire white from Robert Kacher, one of our favorite French wine importers. Made from 100% Chenin Blanc, it has the quality and complexity of a high-end Vouvray, but with a Saumur price tag! Lush peach, canned pear and red apple notes are backed by bracing minerality and fresh acidity. It drinks especially well with savory Indian or Mexican food, as well as pasta with cheesy sauces or fruit and veggie trays.

Nicely rounded in feel, with tasty fig, quince and persimmon notes backed by a long, green tea-filled finish. Solid, underlying acidity lets it all hang nicely together. Drink now through 2011.
