Lafayette Reneau Riesling - Simply Awesome

At the recent Albany event at the Desmond, I had a chance to meet Chris Reno of Chateau Lafayette Reneau. I chatted with him for a while, and tasted some of the exciting new varietals. Always a personal favorite, I wanted to try their riesling.

The riesling did not disappoint. It had a wonderful nose and an excellent balance between fruit and acid. Still one of my favorite rieslings.

They also had an exquisite dry rieslign as well. Absolutely fabulous!

Buy many bottles in time for the holidays.
