black pepper blossoms. mind you, I’ve never smelled a peppercorn blossom but I swear that that is what I’m smelling. everyone else picked up on bell pepper- straight peppercorn to me. From the Chaume hillside, 1 of 2 red wines grown on Chaume. — 11 days ago

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc

Vintage 2013 | I do think that it is not necessary to advocate that some Chenin Blanc wines ‘must age for ten years and more’. This is a very basic wine of Godineau. When drunk young it is good. When older it gets só lush. Lovely aperitive. Also with pâté. — 5 months ago

Le Malabé Bonnezeaux Chenin Blanc 1984

Vintage 1984 | Deep ocher yellow, reminds me of the light of Rembrandt. Marsepan, impression of apricot. Extremely well balanced ánd vivid. Almond pit bitters in taste. Much character in this Chenin Blanc. — 2 years ago

1er Tri Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1996

AHF
9.7

January 1, 2024. Has the longevity of a 27 year old riesling BA, but missing that distinctive sweet/sour palate. Amber gold color, slightly musty nose, moderately sweet palate, tastes of old oak on the long finish. Balanced and firm. — 2 months ago

Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru Chenin Blanc

Vintage 2018 | Quarts de Chaume is imo one of the greatest wines of France, with a lovely micro climate. Chenin Blanc in optima forma. Gold colour, botytris smell, awesome balance. Very vibrant, with good acidity under sweetness 🙏 Thank you Lord! — 3 months ago

Just had a glass with dessert. A sweet white, ripe apple, apricot, absolutely gorgeous. Very fresh for 19 years of age. Loire Chenin Blanc - either sweet or dry, I need to increase my tastings, education and experience. — 2 months ago
