Les Chapaudaises Saumur Chenin Blanc 2017

Chenin at it’s best. Tart apple, tart pear, hint of lemon zest, beeswax, crisp and acidic. Very Savennieres like. — 14 days ago

Colli Orientali del Friuli Pinot Bianco 2018

@Delectable Wine this is the Friuliano.

Pop and pour yesterday. Lime, lanolin, sea salt, a touch of oxidation...lovely aromatics, leaning in a, say, Savennieres direction. On the palate: fantastic acidity, lemon, sea salt, a hint of oxidative character...nice density and a tangy, salty finish.

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2017

Really like this Wine, tasting ‘17 & ‘18 together, ‘17 notes. The Baumard family growing the noble Chenin at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, in 1953 they acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, & in 1968, purchased acreage in Savennieres. Straw with full fruit and light spice aromas. On the palate ripe apple, pear & melon, complex, with vivid acidity. Lingering, ending with mineral and sweet honey character. Wow. A white that should age well. Had ‘16 a while ago, and also great! — a year ago

Clos de la Gran Beaupreau Chenin Blanc 2008

Vintage 2008 | how old is this wine, I asked my not completely inexperienced wife… she smelled, looked at the colour and said: 8 years. But as we know Chenin Blanc can age effortless for many years. Looking at the colour does not say much. This Savennieres is fourteen years old. In excellent condition, crisp and vivid. Multi layered smell with hay, impressions of citrus, mango, stone fruit, minerals. Very refined bitters and great balance. True to type. Lovely. Paired with dim sum and stir-fried Asian vegetables. — 2 months ago

Sables & Schistes Savennieres White Blend 2016

I love most every Savennieres for the steely straight face, sometimes with a smirk. A mix of silvers and yellows and greens - silver skinned with little flecks of gold.

These are sturdy whites I like to drink at cellar temp, warm so they don’t condense on the glass. That’s when the tropical fruits come alive.

Aromas here are lemon poppyseed coffee cake with passion fruit syrup. Starfruit and popcorn kernel. Tingly acid daggers in the sides of your tongue. Big long lasting flavors of lime blossom and spiced baked apple.

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Classic Savennieres balance . Floral, some white pepper spice and phenolic grip. Fairly dry, tart. Not so much of the concentrated lightning quality of the best dry Savennières. But after a week in the fridge this is divine. — 7 months ago

Le Bel Ouvrage Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

Knockout. All the Chenin-y floral elegance one wants with the cool, wintery air that makes Savennieres so wonderful and distinctive.

After about 5 days this is singing. Caramel butterscotch has joined the chorus.

Praepositus Valle Isarco / Eisacktaler Kerner 2019

2019 vintage. Definitely needs time. Concentrated mineral reminds me of Savennieres meets Alpine white. Golden apple peel, lemon peel, lemon pith, dried chamomile and other white flowers, light nuttiness. — a year ago
