Le Genêts Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Sooo perfumed, I mean wildly perfumed. Yellow flower, jasmine, mint and musk. Bracing acid, so concentrated, while being feather light. — 17 days ago

Savennières Clos De La Hutte Chenin Blanc 2016

Really remarkable purity, loads of acid and minerals. Lemongrass, grassy, river stones. Gigantic and crisp. Electric. Austere.

I probably shouldn’t touch my other bottle for 20 years.

Clos Rougeard

Le Clos Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

What a nice bottle, classy and elegant vegetal and green pepper notes that only Rougeard can do as a signature. Everything is there, class, texture, contained power, fruit, length, balance, gorgeous.

Quel beau vin! Des notes végétales avec classe et élégance, on retrouve cela chez Rougeard seulement. Un vin savoureux, du fruit, des notes fines de poivron mais à peine, longueur, volume, texture, tout y est malgré un millésime moyen.. 93-94

Les Beaugrands La Porte Saint Jean Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2018

Having this for the second time when I’m slightly less slaughtered, really wonderful rich, very slightly reductive, but still clean and magnetically delicious. Offered as an alternative to guiberteau which demonstrates how good it is. — 8 days ago

Domaine Patrick Baudouin

Effusion Anjou Chenin Blanc 2014

Funky nose of bree cheese, saffron, brett, mushrooms, yeast, quince, chalky minerals, and lemon. Salty citrus on the palate, lemon, tart peach, white pepper, granite, and gunpowder. Low alcohol, high mineral notes, and medium plus to high acid. Would match well with soft and fragrant cheeses as well as shellfish. — 9 days ago
