Wine of the Week-Chateau Du Tariquet Chenin-Chardonnay $7

Chateau Du Tariquet Chenin-Chardonnay-$7
Like a bouquet of summer flowers in a glass

Perfect for summer salads and seafood, Chateau Du Tariquet is the perfect way to kick off the spring and summer seasons. At just $7 a bottle, this delightful wine is not only easy on the pocket, but light on the palate. The wine is a blend which marries French varietals from the Loire and Burgundy, which gives it a very distinctive character. The wine is intense, yet supple. It combines citrus aromas of Meyer lemon, and a hint of mandarin orange from the Chardonnay with exotic aromas of chamomile flowers and white roses with a bracing mineralogy from the Chenin. Chardonnay kicks in again to give the wine a balanced structure and a voluptuous finish. Your guests will hardly believe that you paid less than $10 for this superb wine. Stock up on a case or two as this may prove to be your 'go to' wine for light brunches and garden parties. Splurge a little and have it with a Maine Lobster sandwich made with avocado relish and fresh greens and a dash of lemon-infused mayonnaise. Shrimp, Crab, Crayfish or Bay Scallops may be substituted for the lobster.
