Chenin Blanc


88 points! Very pale color. delicate aromas of lime and white flowers. Juicy, bright and dry, with noteworthy cut to its lime and floral flavors. There's something almost Savennières-like about this wine. Finishes with good length.

88 Points! BEST VALUE. Bright and lively, a crisp, juicy white wine that zings with apple and passion fruit flavors, which linger appealingly. Off-dry, but it tastes crisp, crisp, crisp.
Wine Spectator, May 2008

Though winemaker Nicolas Quille is mostly occupied with Riesling, he fought to keep producing this crisp effort...with a breezy nose of fresh-pressed apple and white mineral, and a subtly sweet palate.
San Francisco Chronicle, November 2007
Best of the West

Fresh aromas and flavors of grapefruit, lime peel and freshly cut grass, this wine enters the lineup because Nicolas Quille feels Chenin Blanc is one of the great food wines of his native France. Softer than the Dry Riesling, this versatile wine is a refreshing glass on its own.
Seattle Magazine, November 2007

While Washington Stateis Pacific Rim Winemakers have the motto "Riesling Rules," we enjoyed their 2006 Pacific Rim Chenin Blanc ($12). Itis dry but well balanced, and terrific with foods spanning the globe.
