"Jean-Louis Denois is considered by many as a maverick of the Languedoc. This passionate vigneron also produces an impressive portfolio of wines from Limoux, considered one of the coolest regions in the Languedoc. The Denois philosophy is simple. To showcase Limoux as an island of freshness in the south of France. Finding the perfect balance between ripeness and acidity here is the key, and Denois manages to maintain this across the board. The 2002 "La Riviere" is a fantastically good example of chenin blanc, lying somewhere between the taut structure of a Loire chenin and the more fleshy versions found in the New World. This dry wine smells of granny smith apple drizzled with orange blossom honey. A slight saltiness also wafts from the glass, reminisent of a cool ocean breeze. A very versatile wine to enjoy with just about anything, including fish stew, grilled lobster, or baked chicken with fresh herbs. A K&L exclusive!"
