2009 André et Michel Quenard Vin de Savoie Chignin-Bergeron Les Terrasses - France, Savoie, Vin de Savoie Chignin-Bergeron (11/21/2012)
Quick taste at my local retailer. Deep yellow color. Aromas of honeyed quince, mineral and honeysuckle. Very florally. Rich, oily texture, with terrific mineral and white fruit qualities, as well as citrus and beeswax. Bright acidity with a nice finish. (92+ pts.)

Thanks w+a, this was my first experience with it- hell, the first i knew it even existed.

As we were walking out of the cellar room with the Selosse, the wine manager at my lws said to me, "hang on, you have to try this." He grabbed his knife, opened the case and put a bottle of the Quenard in the chiller. Washed out a glass and hands me a taste...

Figured this would be very nice with dinner tomorrow, and give Domino a chance to try it so that I can have permission to go back and get more. Big Grin I love me some Roussanne, and for $30, this will be hard to beat.
Had another of these last week, and happy to have a few more to enjoy over the coming months.

Deep color. Beeswax, white orchard fruit, mineral and melon aromas. Rich texture, with flavors of candied lemon peel, stone and mineral, apple and beeswax. Drinking very well right now. (91 pts.)
