Seriously, why am I not drinking more Chennin Blanc? Especially when there are wines like this that have unbelievable complexity and totally reasonable prices. I swear there is something wrong with me. I am way into the La Coulee from La Source du Ruault. It's from a 1 hectare parcel, barrel fermented and aged. There is so much to get into here: a nose with mandarin oranges, candied lemon peel, navel oranges, honey and guava. A palate that is big, rich, heavy and intense. It may sound sweet, but is totally dry and beautifully crisp. If you ever come into Redwood City yell at me, tell me to buy a bottle of Chenin; you should probably pick one up too.
