I discovered the Belgian wines of Domaine du Chenoy at a wine fair several years ago and was immediately struck by their originality. They eschew the big ‘international’ grape varieties for modern hybrids that few people have heard of but which produce highly original—and very good—wines. The facts that they are organic and produced in Belgium, just an hour from Brussels, are nice, too. They have two Perles de Wallonie, white and rosé. The white is made from a unique blend of Swiss and German grapes, Johanniter, Helios, Bronner and Merzling, produced organically. It has a nice nose of Granny Smith apples, pears and orange peel and a fantastically dry, fruity mouth and long finish.
