The Cheninar

October 12, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Chenin Blanc. The most celebral of white varietals when made into wine. This grape is a chameleon and mirror to its terroir. Maybe you have heard of it? Maybe you have tasted it? Maybe you have already fallen in love with it? Chenin is all the rage in the “wine world” these days, and with good reason. This grape is capable of incredible ageability, richness, and layers of complexity. For some a Chenin Blanc from the old world could beat out a Chardonnay or Riesling with any meal or alone at any time. The difference? World class bottles of Chenin Blanc are still to be had for $30-50 a bottle, which is pure thievery especially when from a great producer in France’s Loire . Want to drink great white wine and pay a fraction of what you might pay otherwise? Learn about Chenin Blanc, then and now with a comparative tasting of new and old vintages. At Le Du’s on October 12th, you will have that opportunity to connect with this grape on the deepest of levels, we hope to see you there! The following wines will be poured:

Francois Chidaine Montlouis-sur-Loire Les Choisilles 2013
