2006 Saumur Lieu-dit Les Epinats

My search to try new whites continues with this Chenin Blanc, picked up from Whole Foods for $8.99. Coming in at 12.5% alcohol, this light-golden colored wine had a slight nose of lime, melon and tropical fruits, followed by a mouth dominated by minerality, tongue-gripping acidity and flavors of slate, coconut, and perhaps a bit of bananas. Good wine to go with food, as I readily quaffed this one down quickly every night with dinner until the last drop.
