L'Ecole No 41 Columbia Valley Chenin Blanc 2018
|Region||United States, Washington, Columbia Valley|
|Brand||L'Ecole No 41|
This fresh and vibrant Chenin Blanc shows highly expressive aromatics of pink grapefruit, passion fruit, petrol, and citrus blossom with flavors of tangerine and yellow apple on a crisp mineral finish.
The fresh-pear and lightly poached apple aromas are attractive and lead to a palate that has a very crisp and brightly cut feel. The acidity holds it well. Good balance. Drink or hold.
Wine & Spirits
The fruit for this wine is drawn from three old-vine sites, most notaly Upland Vineyard, on Snipes Mountain, planted 1979. It has clasic chenin aromas of grass and wood. With broad pear and mildly salty flavors. It needs air and food to open up; pour it with a duck and lentil salad.
