La Folie Lucé

L'ecart Saumur Blanc 2015

Nose has wet sandstone, cut Anjou pear, lemon peel, honeycomb and spring honeysuckle blossom. Faint-ish trailing of white vinegar.

Palate has honeydew mellon rind, under-ripe quince, slight candle wax notes and light minerality. Slightly raw-ish on the medium finish.

Nice, I love all the different expressions that Chenin Blanc can display.

Savennières Chenin Blanc

Vintage 2015 / Warning! If you have this chenin blanc in the cellar, lucky you, do not touch it in the next 5 years. Loads of potential: hay, minerals, fresh maïs, nice bitterness and fine length. Infanticide at this moment. — 9 days ago

Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2005

Lean and mean. In the glass aromas of black pepper, 5 spice, and soft leather creep out with time. Well structured and akin to a lighter vintage Barbaresco. Fascinating wine — 8 days ago

Lawd, this is such a great Savennieres. I vastly prefer this higher end cuvee to the oxidative style of the cuvee speciale. Deep and vivid nose of honey, almonds, some peach and apricot fruit, and also a hint of marzipan. So complex. Palate is juicy and ripe with exquisite purity, acidity and a drop dead amuse Bouche oysters and pearls texture. The Malo helps there and adds so much. Great acidity that tingles and shocks you but it ripe and generous as well. That Chenin lighting. Palate is amazingly dense and complex with just an incredible amount of material but also echoes with iodine, hazelnut and some sweet herbs. This is really complex. Finish is almost tannic with great depth and has many parts. A beautiful, albeit young wine. A stunner. — 17 days ago

Coteau du Houet Chenin Blanc 2005

Robe vieille or
Nez magistral de coing de fruit rouge de figue rotie un festival
Bouche dense le sucre est incroyable mais l énergie et l acidité l équilibre
Mais attention un demi verre c est déjà énorme 6.5 degrés
Mr Angeli a encore frappé 💪🏻

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2012

18/20 (95/100) Потрясающе глубокий и яркий аромат кассиса, спелых ягод черники, ванили, гвоздики и шоколада. Относительно легкое с высокой кислотностью. Насыщенное во вкусе с продолжительным послевкусием. Впечатляет. — 6 days ago

Nice Chenin Blanc from Loire!
On the nose butterscotch, vanilla and lemon honey cough drops!
Taste...loads of tart lemon! Soft honey not sweet...eucalyptus..wet chalk..a smidgen of wooliness that will develop with time for sure!
This wine is young and already has wonderful layers to peel!

@Dawn E. You are doing just fine without my advice, if you're already drinking these kinds of wines. A true Loire star. You'll also do well seeking out the Saumur Champigny (Cab Franc) versions also.
