Deliciously classic Loire chenin from a rising star in Saumur. 

Saumur, France

We think it's a bit confusing that Lambert's wines from the Loire Valley's Saumur aren't better-known, though that surely won't last long. His chenin blancs and cabernet francs compare rather well with many of the pricier, culty wines of his neighbours (e.g. Guiberteau or Germain). He's also a nice fella who throws a heck of a garden party! This may be one of his entry-level chenins, but it's a classic example of the grape and a great intro to the impeccably balanced house style. Expect quince, lemon, and pear with spring flowers and a lively, chalky palate. This'll disappear all on its own on a sunny day, but it has enough guts to stand up to a roast chicken or some buttery spring vegetables.
