1999 Chateau de Villeneuve, Saumur "Les Cormiers" ($9) -- France. Couldn't find much online for this wine but saw one review that suggests it is Chenin Blanc with maybe some Chardonnay and/or Sauvignon Blanc. Found this in a close-out bin and bought a case sight unseen. Opened it a few weeks ago with some wine geeks and they loved it. It almost reminds me of a Sauterne with some botrytis. It has a floral nose, great mouth feel, good balance of acids and a medium to long finish. Great with food. Sadly, there are only six bottles left and the distributor is out. I wish I had bought a few more cases. Hell, I wish I had bought it all!
