Ok, full disclosure: We love Chenin Blanc. It's gaining traction all over the world, but we still love it most from its original stomping grounds, France’s Loire Valley. Domaine de la Treille is in the southern part of Anjou, a region known for schist soils and softer renderings of this grape's characteristic acidity.

We get honeycomb and stone fruit on the nose, with spiced pear on the palate and a gentle acidity to finish. Whites from Anjou are meant to be drunk young, so enjoy with abandon, and then come let us know when you’re ready for a racy Savennieres! (yep, also Chenin Blanc)

Food Ideas: Crab-stuffed avocado, pasta vongole, ricotta and fresh basil ravioli, butternut squash soup
