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.

Though Chenin Blanc from the Loirersquo;s Saumur appellation are rarely found in the U.S. market, their crisp texture and flavors of apple, limestone, and honey are quite delightful, and make Saumur an excellent alternative to dry Riesling, Muscadet, or Chablis.

ldquo;Please sir, may I have Saumur?rdquo; You will find yourself quoting this little twist of ldquo;Oliverrdquo; 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 ldquo;Dickensrdquo; out of you.

Five years ago I selected the 2000 vintage of this wine as my ldquo;pick.rdquo; For those of you who stockpile your back issues of Bon Appeacute;tit and Road amp; 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 mdash; crisp, clean and bursting with zesty lime and citrus flavors with a touch of honey and flowers. Pronounced ldquo;so-moor,rdquo; and made entirely from Chenin Blanc by the proud vignerons of Alliance Loire, yoursquo;ll enjoy it whether or not your name starts with v-i-g-n.

A fresh, stony style, with hints of almond, white peach and melon rind notes. The dry style of Chenin Blanc is a crisp, refreshing wine with citrus flavors offset by an almost creamy texture. This is a delightful wine, versatile with a wide range of foods. It would pair nicely with grilled chicken or pork dishes.

From the heart of the Loire Valley, where Chenin Blanc is the white grape of choice, this 2006 Saumur bursts with bright, tangy flavors of juicy pear and quince. It is clean and refreshing with zesty acidity.
