Quarts de Chaume is essentially a late harvest Vouvray (Chennin Blanc) and perhaps my all-time favorite dessert wine. Baumard is my favorite brand.

From Tasting Table: When it comes to dessert wines, most drinkers don't get past Sauternes. Commit a new vocabulary phrase to heart: Quarts de Chaume.This region in France's Loire Valley has been turning out extraordinary, age-worthy sweet wines for decades, but only recently was it bestowed Grand Cru classification. Made entirely from late-harvest Chenin Blanc, it relies on the development of botrytis--that miraculous bacteria known as "noble rot," which dries grapes to a sugary sweetness.

One of the most dazzilingly honeyed wines imaginable, the Quarts de Chaume hails from a region of France known for incredible wine.

If you're not gonna drink Quarts de Chaume, drink the next best thing--Bonnezeaux! Of course, the perfect #wine for the Loire's most famous treat-Tarte Tatin. The Domaine des Petits Quarts was a #perfectpairing to this Loire Valley recipe--like liquid honey, rich apricot & dried pineapple candy.  Incidentally, a killer pairing to your #Thanksgiving pumpkin pie this yr, too.
