Les Caillardieres Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Exudes beautiful lime and orchard fruit. This is such a fantastic vintage. Has that magical balance between ripeness, sweetness, and vivacity. Phenomenal. — 6 days ago

Jeanne d'Arc Chenin Blanc 2017

Totally unlike any other CA Chenin Blanc I’ve ever had, the richness supported by acidity and minerality, orange hue, and phenolic qualities remind me of a young Closel Savennières Clos du Papillon. — 3 years ago

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2018

Nose is fantastic. Orchard flowers. White peach. Orange blossom, honey, apricot. A great long finish. Just not as mineral/acid driven as the best Savennières in more classic vintages. Just slightly off dry. Has the ‘18 ripeness that I’ve found nearly overwhelming. Nothing wrong with it but the wines are less crisp and versatile. Will probably avoid purchasing more of the vintage going forward. — 2 months ago

I really love these. They’ve been harder to find in recent years.

Cuvée Isa Moelleux Savennières Chenin Blanc

Deep gold. Abundant nose of dried apples and golden raisins. Sturdy full-bodied palate echoes the nose with a hint of yellow flowers. Strikingly firm acidity from entry to finish. Has clearly held up well over the decades, and is showing graciously now. A tasty treat in its own, but really shines paired with tarte tatin. — 2 years ago

Whoa. Cool. I can imagine what Verdelho from Closel would taste like. Does it taste like that?

Actaeon Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc 2014

Very good tonight. Magenta/purple in the glass with a nice brilliance. A dizzying array of fruit, with the red spectrum featured. Tar, some floral (violet) notes beautifully balanced and a long, pleasing finish. While it is powerful, there is an elegance which vaults it to the next level. I’d say my favorite of Mr. Pott’s wines. — a year ago
