Pretty floral and spice aromatics evolve into citrus with a drying acidity, making this dry Chenin Blanc a perfect match for Mexican, Thai, and everything in between. When you don’t know what you are having for dinner, this is your wine.

Pretty floral and spice aromatics evolve into citrus with a drying acidity, making this dry Chenin Blanc a perfect match for Mexican, Thai, and everything in between. When you don’t know what you are having for dinner, this is your wine. Food pairing: poultry, seafood, spicy foods, pasta Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp

This is a young wine with some bitter almond flavors and a taut, nervy character. The wine is tight with green apple acidity showing through. Give it four years and it will be a rich, fruit-and-spice flavored wine.

The 2011 Clos Le Vigneau, from a more challenging vintage, is just as good. Aromatics of spring flowers, poached pears, honeyed melon and some buttered citrus jump from the glass of this medium-bodied, very pure, fresh and nicely concentrated wine, which is the epitome of a dry Chenin Blanc meant to go with a cornucopia of cuisines.

Light, bright gold. Intriguing aromas of white peach, truffle, ginger and iodine, with hints of flowers and sweet butter. Dense and tactile, with an invigorating thread of smoky minerality giving the oily pit fruit and spice flavors a steely quality. The finish repeats the iodine and floral notes and lingers with excellent persistence. Irsquo;d love to taste this next to a high-end Saint-Aubin, or even a Chassagne-Montrachet.

Your first take on this heavily oaked, natural-yeast Chard is that itrsquo;s a three-alarm smoke alert. Few, if any, Chilean Chardonnays are this overtly oaky. But the wood is of high quality, and the more time you give it the more you find apple, citrus and spice. Yes, itrsquo;s still resiny. But the balance and natural character of the wine are very good. Best if you like a New World style with plenty of barrel character.

Bright yellow-gold. A wild, highly perfumed bouquet evokes dried pear, orange, iodine and toasty lees. The palate offers sappy, densely packed orchard fruits along with suave spice and floral nuances. A note of toasted grain comes up with air and lingers on the long, focused finish. This rich, fleshy wine would be great with a buttery fish or chicken dish.
