à François(e)... Anjou Chenin Blanc 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

The 2020 Anjou Blanc à Francois(e) has the purity of mountain air. Hailing from a single parcel named Les Gats, it is a mid-weight style that's not about aromatic appeal but texture. From a clay-based vineyard, this is one of the more weighty, rounded styles that Boudignon produces with a structured frame that clamps the mouth and acidity that pierces the wine's core like an arrow. There's no malo at this estate which somewhat explains its character. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, September 2022)

Klima Gamay Syrah 2019

What a stunner.
Start round and sweet, friendly, red fruits Gamay in the place, progressively letting the Syrah play her partition. Spices and dark berries and herbs and complexity.

So beautiful! So pleasant to drink!

Anjou Chenin Blanc 2020

Delectable Wine
9.1

Unlike his Savennières, the fruit for Boudignon's 2020 Anjou Blanc is purchased. The result is a pure, clean wine with delectable purity. There are delicate flavors of just-ripe pineapple, citrus, nettles and a subtle hint of vanilla. It is fermented and aged in both 500-liter barrels and oval Stockinger 'cigars'. A line of acidity pulls this wine through to a refined conclusion. It can be approached now for its fine fruit but will go on. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, September 2022)

Van Hauen Chardonnay 2020

9.8

This is an 11.5% Chardonnay from Baden by the area right on Lake Konstanz. Maybe 800 bottles. A stunning new discovery of a country that continues to blow me away in the Chardonnay department. Gotta be my discovery of the year.

Iodine. Smells like Meursault and is very lemony, this is like 1er Cru, terrific inner mouth, wow, this is so serious. Amazing linearity. Intense and so so good. Insane purity and acidity. This is so lean and so elegant. 11.5%. Just a freak show. The most new wave white Burg style I’ve ever had in Germany. Think Roulot/Brisset/Boudignon/Pillot/Ramonet style.

La Vigne Cendrée Savennières Chenin Blanc

Amazing depth and concentration for Chenin. Super dry and nervy, tons of flavor and a lot to like overall but not sure it’s worth the cost of entry. — a year ago

This is one of the best Chenins i’ve ever had. Next level elegance and aromatic salinity. The elegance will make you pay attention. One of the most finesse driven white wines I’ve ever had. — a month ago

Rosé de Loire Cabernet Franc Rosé 2021

Explosive nose. Almost a slight confected note. Acid is well integrated. Watermelon, strawberry, green pepper, cotton candy. Nice minerality. Very tasty. Very French. // +1 point on day two. — a month ago

Les Fougerais Savennières Chenin Blanc 2011

Stunning now but should evolve for 15+ years. Has thrown off its babyfat but very thick texture, excellent acid, and stoney citrus all the way. Incredible drive, drank over three nights and only better and better. — 9 months ago
