Loire Chenin

Domaine Huet

Le Mont Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2009

Sweet aroma explosion. Light honey, Mirabelle plums, apricots, white tea, candied orange peel, yet it remains so fresh.
On the palate this is so balance, so juicy, v. sweet to still fresh. And there’s depth, a hint of tannic structure, a stony, mineral finish.
Why have dessert when you can have this?

Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Wet wool, delicate stone fruits, and wet stone. Further concentration and a bit more brightness would have made this one sing. — 17 days ago

Goutte D'Or Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1990

Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94

Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages.

Cuvée "T" Brut Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2019

Beautiful gold color. Aromas of apricot, green apple, slate and freshly washed laundry. Pallet is leesy with hints of apple and minerals. Touch of citrus on the very smooth finish. Nicely balanced. Fresh, rich and satisfying. No oak. Easy drinker. Pleasant surprise. — 13 days ago

Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2020

Grapey, honeycomb, lily flower, honeysuckle, very expressive. Good acid and if you’re not an acid freak like I am you will not miss it. Needs more time to gain complexity. — 18 days ago

Sauvion

Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with scents of sweet citrus notes, underripe mango, pear, pineapple core and honeysuckle form the nose of this light white. The palate is round and a little heavy in feel at first, medium acidity, hints of citrus and honey lifts the wine to a medium finish with a mineral character. — 8 days ago

De Chanceny

Brut Excellence Tête de Cuvée Vouvray Chenin Blanc

Nose: lemon, mousse, sweet orange, candied cherry, a tiny hint of floral vanilla. Smells very inviting!

Taste: mousse, vanilla, lemon meringue (?), mild nuttiness, smooth and silky texture. Distinct cherry on the finish. Marvelous. Great value, better than most champagne I’ve tried. 92.
