A Rare White Wine With True Finesse
Today we have a rare white wine with true finesse we think is perfect for the transition into Autumn.
You won't see a white Chinon Blanc very often because it represents only 2% of the total wine production in this appellation. Made from the grape Chenin Blanc, Jean-Maurice Raffault's Chinon Blanc is planted on chalky, limestone clay soils and fermented at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks with only native yeasts.
This is a white wine of true finesse, at once rich and very fresh with notes of citrus, honey and white fruits. It has fantastic press and has miniscule production. After discount it can be yours for less than $16/bottle!
Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Blanc 2017
"Juicy, with lime, pear, peach and green almond flavors mixed together, backed by a bright mineral edge and lively acidity. Tasty now, but with the energy to cellar for the near term. Drink now through 2021. 1,000 cases made, 120 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)

Jean-Maurice Raffault's Chinon Blanc is $19.99/bottle or $191.90/12 pack case ($15.99/bottle).
