Chenin Blanc
[SHEN-ihn BLAHN , , SHEN-ihn BLAHNGK]
Grown in California and France's Loire Valley, the Chenin Blanc grape makes intense, spicy, slightly sweet wine. Chenin Blancs have a strong acidity that modulates the sweetness and promotes good aging. This well-balanced grape is responsible for France's famed Vouvray, Côteaux du Layon and Saumur. It's also used to produce several of California's sparkling wines.
