Domaine des Baumard La Caleche, 2019

Domaine des Baumard, in the Loire Valley of France, makes some of the best Chenin Blanc wines in the world. This Caleche bottling uses Chenin Blanc grapes from younger vines (50%) along with Chardonnay (50%) to produce a pleasant every day wine.

Medium deep lemon yellow. Melon, lime, pears, honey, white flowers. Medium body with a rich mid-palate. Chardonnay softens the Chenin Blanc, which in turn adds an acidic edge and some interest to the Chardonnay. At $10 to $15 a bottle, this is an excellent value.
