appellation: Anjou (Loire), France
variety: chenin blanc, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc
We love a good Anjou blanc here at Streetcar (you’ll typically find at least a couple on the shelves) and this lovely wine from Château du Breuil is no exception. Since 1822 they’ve been producing quality wines in the Loire Valley and have kept up with the times by converting the vineyards to organic farming in 2015. Chenin Blanc is the star varietal in "Les petites Rochettes” with small additions of chardonnay and sauvignon blanc that round things out and push it in a more creamy, full bodied direction. There are notes of tropical fruit, granny smith apple and citrus peel along with bright acidity that results in a long, lip-smacking finish. Lobster or scallops (or any shellfish, really) would pair nice; so would some crackers and chèvre.
