By on February 26, 2013

L'Ecole Chenin BlancBest Buy! Marty Clubb has been crafting serious Chenin Blanc since 1987, and a cool vintage helped maintain his traditional profile with fruit from three historic Yakima Valley vineyards – Upland, Rothrock and Phil Church. There are aromas of gooseberry, cantaloupe, lemon Quench Gum and honeysuckle. It’s beautiful and dry with honeydew melon, mint, lemon and lime flavors, a bit of roundness on the midpalate and a remarkable slaty finish.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 2,285 cases

Alcohol: 13.5
