La Grapperie, La Desiree (2017)$44.00
Producer La Grapperie
Wine Region Loire Valley, France
Varietal Chenin Blanc
Wine maker Renaud Guettier was THE first in the AOC to plow his vineyards with a horse and spends countless, meticulous hours in his vineyards.
It shows in the wine. This wine is EXPRESSIVE, as you first open it, it sings rock opera to you, its a lot of a lot and it makes you intrigued. Then after some time on the glass it becomes quite impressive as it opens up beautifully and ends up being quite the elegant Chenin. Forget about the green apple note you usually get from this varietal, it is that but also SO MUCH MORE!
