Lachateau Vouvray 2010 review by (PB)
Pale straw hue and a bouquet that is full of bananas, citrus,and loads of tropical fruit galore.
Palate--Minerals abound on first taste,slightly sweet but basically off dry, with bountiful tropical fruit melange finishing with a slightly bitter lime rind that is interesting.
This is another Trader Joe's ridiculous value at $7. Vouvray (the Loire Valley, France) is known for its Chenin Blanc and they run considerably more than $7. While it is true that with wine you tend to get what you pay for, TJ's hs such buying clout that they are able to obtain super great pricing on many of their wines. When my wife tasted this she said--let's buy a case and drink it through the Summer chilled down. EXACTLY!
This is a wonderful summer, porch wine, party wine,and oh yeah--I pared it with black eyed-peas and ham. Oh yeah, it worked as I knew it would. Raise a glass or three!!!
