Château de Bonnezeaux

Vieilles Vignes du Fief Prevost Chenin Blanc 2017

These wines are crazy good... Salty, citrusy, cidery and a little cheese rind. Tasting great upon release but will only improve with age! 🌟🌟🌟🌟 — 7 days ago

Vent Y Tourne Gamay Blend

Raspberry and blueberry rolling around the barn. Medium bodied, mostly smooth but with just a little texture. Loved it. — 18 hours ago

Domaine des Baumard

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Really like this Wine. 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 this 9 months ago, even better now!! — 2 days ago

Domaine Fournier-Longchamps

Le Parc Savenniéres Chenin Blanc 2015

Chenin Blanc and I have a rocky relationship (pun unintended). I struggle to appreciate what geeks love. But this one I can get behind. The nose sports rich orchard fruit and a bucketful of crushed rock. So minerally in the mouth it’s almost tannic-seeming. But there is laser-sharp acidity and some nice echos of pure fruit in the finish. Very nice! — 17 days ago

Les Vieux Clos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Big bold chenin. Melon, some honey, decent acidity. Not a bad wine by the classic with some classic bistro food. — a day ago

Les Chapaudaises Saumur Chenin Blanc 2016

A bit tighter than the 15’ tasted recently. Perhaps more weight as well but still so tight— green tea, green apple, chalk, laser focused with great cut. Love it ⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ — 2 days ago
