Clos de l'Ecotards Saumur Chenin Blanc 2014

Vintage 2014 | Razorsharpe Chenin Blanc with minerality. Not a wine to get acquainted with the grape, it does by no means try to charm you. But for lovers of a Chenin Blanc, it is top! Nice acidity. Pure. | A lot like @Peter van den Besselaar ’s Boudignon from last week. Happy Birthday! 🎂 — 5 days ago

Bonnezeaux Chenin Blanc

Vintage 2011 | Birthday, so I fetched one of the gems in the cellar. Chenin Blanc with barrel aging. Incredibly beautiful peaches smell and awesome honey taste. Mesmerizing wine paired with an Orange/Fruitcake. — 6 days ago

Clos Rougeard

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2014

Too closed at the moment. Opened up somewhat after a couple of hours in the decanter. Oak is not yet integrated, but the fruit and acidity speaks of great things to come. Would love to try it with 10–20 more years of bottle age. — 13 days ago

Domaine de l'Enchantoir

Le Pied à l'ètrier Puy Notre Dame Saumur Cabernet Franc 2017

Must have been a scorcher vintage cause don’t remember 14.5% alcohol. Still a go to summer red though. Fresh, balanced still, all red fruits with strong raspberry pull. Dense dark red appearance. Originally a Daniel Johnnes find, Skurnik importer. — 16 days ago

Anjou Chenin Blanc 2018

Confiture, confit, deep, comfort, warm.
Very yummy, excellent value for likers of orange wines aka white wines macerated on their skin.
Yet another take on the Chenin grape that keeps pleasing me.

Rosé d'Anjou Gamay - Grolleau Blend 2019

Soft pink hue. Aromas and flavors of cream, hay, raspberry, strawberry, stone, and watermelon. Captivating nose, with a soft, smooth mouthfeel and an elegant and well-balanced finish. Bonus points for QPR. A go-to, everyday Rosé. — 4 days ago

Château de la Roulerie

Le P'tit Chenin Anjou Chenin Blanc 2015

This delicious dry white has hints of melon, pear and green apples. It was light and refreshing and the lingering aftertaste leaves nothing but a strong desire to have another sip. — 3 days ago

Les Vieux Clos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2011

Lovely, sherry notes with loads of oxidative lemon, lambs wool, sweet apple. On the palate, soft acid, dense yellow fruit, banana, lemon peel. Great dense finish. This is always a singular wine, and words (and numbers) never do it justice. — 6 days ago
