Domaine St. Nicolas, Fiefs Vendeens ‘Les Clous’ Blanc 2005

January 27, 2008

~$11US, 60% Chardonnay, 40% Chenin Blanc, Fiefs Vendeens, Loire Valley

Very pale. Fun nose of apple-cider, grass, and fresh peaches. Light, fresh and very balanced fruit vs acidity. This wine walked the line – steely, austere Chablis-like structure, with the fascinating flavor profile of Chenin blanc (tropical fruit, broccoli rabe, river-stones). Although somewhat complex – not a thinker-and-a-sipper – just an easy weeknight white that would rock with roast chicken, grilled fish, or endive/radicchio salads. Awesome value $11 Loire white, right in my wheelhouse.
