Domaine du Tariquet Chenin Chardonnay! Domaine du Tariquet contacted me about sampling some of their wines, which they produce without animal products. Awesome, right? I knew my coterie of oenophiles would never turn down free wine, so I said, Yes please, and here we are.
This is their Chenin Chardonnay, which is a bright white that I would definitely drink again. But don’t take it from me; let my fancy-wine-talkers elaborate.
They both got grapefruit on the nose, and appreciated its lovely golden color. My mother liked the “light fruit and citrus on the front end” and the “crisp mineral finish.” My dad also tasted fruit with very little acid, “lemon with peach,” and they both noted the green apple flavor of malolactic fermentation. “It’s a nice, crisp wine that will be ideal served lightly chilled on a summer evening on the patio.”
To find Domaine du Tariquet wines in your area, check out their distributors, or contact your local wine seller. And I suggest you do; this Chenin Chardonnay was delightful.
