Pithon Paille Anjou Mozaik, 2017

This has been available for several months at WineBid as a buy-now wine for $11.99 or at auction for a reserve of $10. If you have some, I suggest that you give it plenty of time to air. And it is best only slightly chilled, if at all. It is authentic Loire Chenin Blanc, after all.

Deep gold color. As I say, takes awhile to start showing its best. Ripe melon, lemon, poached apples, honey and straw. True to Chenin Blanc form, it is highly acidic but with broad as well as intense flavors that become increasingly complex and interesting. I could spend hours getting to know this wine. I have bought a few bottles already but may go back for more.
