A bit lack of aroma, but relatively strong taste...
External Reviews for Réserve des Vignerons Saumur Blanc
Crisp, with flint, lime, floral and mineral notes on a bright frame. Drink now through 2007.
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.
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.
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.
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.
