Chenin Blanc: The Loire’s Diverse White

It may not be as high acid as its northern friend, Riesling, but Chenin Blanc can pack just as stunning—and acrobatic—a performance. This grape of France’s Loire Valley, which thrives in the appellations of Vouvray, Savennières, Anjou, Coteaux du Layon, and Coteaux du Loir, to name a few, ranges in style from still to sparkling, from bone dry to off-dry to made for dessert. Here at Astor Wines & Spirits our inventory of Chenin Blanc runs deep. We are fortunate enough, even, to carry back vintages dating to the 1940s of perfect, aromatic, and food-worthy Chenin Blanc. In every expression—from the driest, most-mineral driven Savennierès to the most supple and honeyed Coteaux du Layon—these wines deserve to be savored in the thick of summer. They are clean finishing beauties that hold up to a warm summer evening.
