2016v. Great QPR here for an alt. to chablis, with a little less acidity. Lemon, wet stone, lemon pith/grapefruit bitterness, and a creamy lemon curd on the finish when I first sipped it. Nothing fancy, but a good week night old world chard. 12% ABV.

Terrific value. Impressive balance between the floral notes and the crisp finish. Pairs well again and again with fish and chicken.

Cheap, gulpable, inoffensive chard from the Loire.

Twist off, but classy. Lighter color. More silver than golden. Smells citrusy. Flavors are crisp, gentle and fresh. Hint of wood, but mostly a dry, tart lively white. This is my kind of Chard.

Connivence of a screw-top. And great value at $11 @davisfoodcoop. Pretty yellow straw color. Faint aroma of pears and pineapples. Easy flavors. Plenty tart. Lemony. Fresh. I’d be stumped in a blind tasting if somebody said this was CA Sauv Blanc. It’s not bad. Made an enjoyable warm-up wine for NYE.
