Claude Riffault, Les bouchauds, Sury en Vaux, France, 2011

A very chiseled feel to the flint and gooseberry notes. The mouthwatering, keen finish lets chive flower and fleur de sel notes chime in.  $46

Domaine Cherrier et Fils, Loire, France, 2012

Light-bodied, but with good drive to the herb, lime and flint notes that stay bright on the finish.   $42
