Domaine Bourillon Dorleans

Loire Valley's Anytime, Anyplace Delicious White!
LIMITED QUANTITIES
This past weekend I was in Nantucket attending a wedding. The rehearsal dinner was a casual clam bake on the beach and I was asked to select a versatile white that would pair with a variety of shellfish and side dishes. What a night, what a feast and what wine!
    I selected the 2007 Domaine Bourillon Dorleans Vouvray Sec. This delicious dry white hails from Vouvray in the Loire Valley; it is 100% old vine Chenin Blanc and is one of the noble grapes of France. It may be lesser known than Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, but is equally as delicious and more versatile. Fans of lighter white wines will appreciate its subtlety, while fans of more full body whites will appreciate its depth and complexity. Specifically, this dry Chenin Blanc displays a delicious creamy profile of pear, apple and hints of passion fruit. The acidity is wonderfully balanced and provides excellent zip and freshness that brightens the wine.
    Domaine Bourillon Dorleans was an overwhelming crowd-pleaser that night on the beach and it will be for you as well. Pair with shellfish, sushi, tuna steak, salads and chicken throughout the summer. In fact, this versatile wine can be enjoyed all year round. Enjoy!

$19.95 per bottle / $239.40 per case
