Organic wines from Saumur by Domaine Guiberteau

“Some of the most exquisite white wines in the world…”

Ryan Arnold, divisional wine director for Lettuce Entertain You restaurants was asked by Michael Austin of the Chicago Tribune to dress up an easy and comfortable bowl of corn chowder with franks for a cold January day in Chicago.

Among Ryan’s suggestions is the 2012 Domaine Guiberteau Saumur Blanc.  Ryan says:

This chenin blanc possesses flavors of baked apple, tangerine, honey and ginger, and will complement the heartiness of the dish’s potatoes, creamed corn and butter. It also offers both a rich texture and mouthwatering acidity. Domaine Guiberteau is in the Loire Valley’s appellation of Saumur, and is making some of the most exquisite white wines in the world, especially for the price.
