Straight from France’s Loire Valley in the appellation contrôlée of Anjou comes Les Champs Vignots, a demi-sec 100% Chenin Blanc wine. We enjoyed this with goat’s cheese topped with spicy Thai chili sauce, pork pâté and fresh green grapes.
A pale shade of lemon-green, this lovely wine sports some light legs and aromas of citrus, pear, yellow apple and lots of minerality.
This is a youthful wine that is medium dry but that also has juicy, high acidity to balance out the sugar. The alcohol is refreshingly low at only 11% and the body is quite solid at medium.
The flavours show light lemon zest, juicy Asian pear, a little yellow pear juice and white peach.
A WSET Very Good wine. What lovely high acidity balanced with residual sugar. Especially perfect for appetizers or brunches.
