Wine Wednesday - 2013 Cheverny and
Sea Scallops & Salad Nicoise

Cheverny is a French white wine from the Loire Valley. A Kermit Lynch import so you know you can't go wrong. Pretty much anything we see from Kermit Lynch is a winner.

Hoisting my glass I noticed a clarity giving the appearance of pale pear juice. It doesn't taste like pears at all, rather lightly apple to the nose and palate. Nice finish.



This wine is 85% Sauvignon Blanc & 15% Chardonnay. It paired very well with Salad Nicoise and buttery garlic scallops



Never exciting, mostly delicious, always have wine.....

Louise, we just try new ones and of course have our favorites, but it's a fun journey learning!

Joanne, it would go well with your basil goat cheese grits :-)

Joy, it's a keeper. Great for these very hot days.
