Vignoble Rivière du Chêne, a winery on the Chemin du Terroir in the Laurentides, north of Montréal. This is exactly the kind of wine that puts Quebec on the list of contenders in Canada: well crafted, good value, undiscovered local treasure. Definitely picking up some more next time I'm at the SAQ. (Or maybe I'll cash in on their current sale - a case of William blanc for $120. Pretty good deal.)
William 2010 Vin Blanc - Linen and floral notes on the nose, followed by a zesty citrus flavour and vigorous acidity. A bit oily on the finish, but not offensive, with a lingering sweetness that lasts beyond the final sip.
