Valerie Forgues, Sauvignon Blanc, 2018, 750ml

Domaine Riffault, Sancerre Akmenine Blanc, 2015
Golden color, almost amber. Strong smoky and dried fruit aromas, apricot, fig and dates with an almond note. Almost oily fullness and a salty finish.

Muscadet is the best value in all the wine world. Like, dry minerally white wines? This is what you need in your life.
Nicolas Reau "Attention Chenin Mechant"
Nothing like a crisp and refreshing Chenin Blanc from Anjou. Of all the unique Loire valley regions making Chenin, the most unctuous pleasure most certainly comes from here. Yellow, honeyed fruit and tons of salt -- pure pleasure.
Domaine de l'Ecu, Orthogneiss, 2016
This wine is part of a new trend where winemakers name their batches after the soil that the grapes are grown in. Orthogneiss imparts a flinty, savory character to this sharp and citrus variety.
