2005 Champalou Vouvray

I had this tonight with a Porcini, red pepper and garlic pasta… and some good olive oil, of course. Damn, it was a nice pairing.

The nose of this Chenin Blanc-based wine is a slightly mellow mix of lemon, melon and stone. If you dribbled some cantaloupe and lemon juice and a touch of honey on a (clean) stone, you’d get what the flavours of this wine are about. It’s got a slightly round, mineral-laced finish. Yum. That pretty much sums it up.

If you’re in the mood for something different and get a chance to try this, do it. It’s tasty stuff.

~$25 at Kitsilano Wine Cellars.
