Chateau Yvonne Blanc 2018: Despite being youthful with a very bright future ahead is so moreish and delicious in its infant stage. Serve 10-12 degrees in your large burgundy glasses and even better after some time in the decanter. And most importantly, make sure to get som while its still available.
Dense concentration on the nose with grilled lemon, ripe peaches and nectarines, honey, blossom a very integrated oak profile and a chalky minerality.
A piercing and electric acidity dominates the palate and cuts through and brings balance to the a full body with a waxy and creamy viscosity. Pronounced flavour intensity with full presence through the complex mid plate. There is definitely a long and very serious finish but falls short from being a hall of famer.
A very smart craftmanship from the artisanal organic and biodynamic Chateau Yvonne, the Saumur Blanc went through malolactic fermenation and spent 12 months in oak (20%) new

Funky wine with golden raisin color. Raisin and grapefruit on the nose. Lots of earth tones and funk. Pairs well with lobster. — 3 months ago
Very complex, herbal-fruit character like crataegus, peach, tender rosemary or lavender leaf. Fantastic long creamy but gracile mineral taste!!! Kind of calcareous, but tender with flowers, nuts and herbs

Matured nicely. This can franc is very warm and welcoming. Great fruit and some very nice spice to follow it. — 2 months ago
Chenin sur la richesse et l'opulence, mais malgré tout sans sucre résiduel perceptible. Miel, fleurs, citron confit, légère impression de fumée. Et cette acidité qui débarque en finale pour laver le palais et inviter la prochaine gorgée. Je recommande. Excellent RQP. — 7 months ago
