2012 Domaine de Tariquet Chenin-Chardonnay

2012 Domaine de Tariquet Chenin-Chardonnay (Michel Carossio, Handout / June 10, 2013)

From: Cotes de Gascogne, France

Price: $13

Serve with: Bouillabaisse, spicy Asian cuisine

This artful blend of 75 percent chenin blanc and 25 percent chardonnay combines the fruit of the former and body of the latter in a fresh, dry white wine. It offers refreshing, lively flavors of lime, pear, apple and minerals. An excellent choice as we move into spring and outdoors quaffing. From Robert Kacher Selections.
