Chenin Blanc, the white grape of the central Loire Valley, didn’t used to be such a rare bird stateside – prior to 2000, it was actually planted quite widely in California. Alas, most wineries gradually realized there was better return on investment producing Cabernet and Sauvignon Blanc. However, the last few years have seen a bit of a domestic resurgence of this is a supremely versatile grape.
Lot 722 is a beauty – elegant yet robust, made in a dry style with light oak influence that is sure to please anyone who loves classic California Chardonnay. Aged for five months sur lie, the wine is produced by a multitalented gentleman who started his career as a sommelier in Michelin starred restaurants before taking his palate to the winemaking side of the industry.
delightful in every way!
Summer Salad Hit
Crisp, tart, dry - all of our favorites! Tasted some pear, green apple, maybe honeydew melon ? Paired well with a big salad outside on the deck.
Light and Refreshing for Spring
My family enjoyed this wine with quiche and a salad. It was the perfect pairing of foods and wine. The meal and the wine were light and delicious. We could taste the apple and pears.
I had never tried this varietal before. It was crisp. I would get again if they had it.
This chenin was crisp and slightly effervescent, and had smooth mellow aromas of pears and white flowers.
This is a refreshing, smooth Chenin blanc! A hint of pear, with just a pinch of dry. A great way to toast a summer sunset!!
Light dry white
This is my first time trying this varietal. Very light and dry with apple, pear, and light lemon flavors. A decent white but I think I would like more body. It’s always interesting to try something new and CH always has good variety.
so just tried this and now found out it is gone. was very good , dry and great value. hope cam buys again
Nice and Dry
We really enjoyed this white for a change, it was dry and well balanced. Looking forward to more Chenin Blanc from CH.
delicious wine, complex flavors, better than the normal white!
