Received this as Pascaline’s recommendation from her selection of Thibaud’s wines at Racines. What a wonderful woman and an equally vibrant wine. Citrus, energy, sheen, cut, density and length. — 6 days ago

Nose is lemony, mineral and precise. Almonds, vanilla, herbs. Gorgeous detail and so subtle. Palate has that German acid! Electric. So much acidity and lemon lime tinged fruit and also a hint of opulence. So fresh, so clean, so pure. Amazing. Likely the cleanest Chenin I’ve ever had. Complex minerality throughout and astonishing length. Amazing compact mouthfeel, explosive yet precise, pithy and youthful fruit and top top purity. Wow. Level of super 1er Cru White burg like a Meursault Perrieres or Chassagne La Grand Ruchottes. The best bottle of Echelier Blanc I’ve had so far. — 16 days ago

Domaine des Sablonettes

Le P'tit Blanc Anjou Chenin Blanc

Tough to beat at the price. Great people, great wine. This is classic Chenin-y Chenin - bruisey apple, lemon bread/wet hay/wet wool (pick your Chenin-y Chenin term) with a kiss of honey and a sneaky complex minerality. — 5 days ago

Le Franc Cabernet Franc 2002

A beautiful example of what a natural wine can be. Earthy forest, green peppers and pine. Both interesting and delicious. Hard to stop drinking. Thanks J&C! — 5 days ago

Saumur-Champigny Cabernet Franc 2016

The first nose is barnyard funk and rotten eggs all over the place. Ewww. Then comes green pepper, then comes pepper and other spices, then black currant and red berries. Much more my stuff. The palate is rather demanding. A strong acid backbone, a salty layer, a nice black currant / cherry persistant note, some grip, some tannins too. Long finish with salt, meat juice and red and black fruits on an instable balance. Rather very good and surprising. This is very good stuff considering the price tag (around 12€) — 20 days ago

Great intensity with beautiful aromatics and a slight hint of used wood. The texture, structure, and balance were sublime. Ever so slight nail polish thing going on but it added to the character. Great long finish — a month ago
