Domaine Grosbot Barbara Blanc Le Vin d'Alon Saint Pourcain 2022 (Loire Valley, France)
For centuries, the most important local grape was the Tressalier. Historical records suggest that this grape flourished in Saint-Pourçain as it did nowhere else, but it has since been eclipsed by the Chardonnay grape. Denis Barbara has revived Tressalier, and it has become a signature component in his white wines.
With this wine, we get raw honey, lavender, ripe apple, and apricot. But don’t be fooled- this wine is dry. A bracing acidity balances all that lovely fruit, coming through on the palate with a nice, stony, chalky minerality.
Food Ideas: Pasta with a cream sauce, roasted squash, almond chicken with concord grape chutney and blue cheese.
