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. — 2 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
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! — 16 days ago
