Wine estate : Domaine Olga Raffault
Designation : Chinon
Name : Champ-Chenin
Country : France
Vivino : 4.5/5
Note : Tasted a few months ago, it's amazing how this beauty can grow old in the cellar. A cloudy robe with an intense nose of flint, toast as well as almond. On the palate, a freshness that has survived through the years, floral flavors and superb length.
Dégusté il y a quelques mois, cela est incroyable comment cette merveille peut parfaitement vieillir dans la cave. Une robe trouble avec un nez intense de pierre à fusil, toast ainsi que de l'amande. En bouche, une fraicheur qui a sus se maintenir à travers les années, des saveurs florales et une superbe longueur. — 7 days ago
@Delectable Wine this is the La Pitchoune Chenin Blanc ‘la bombe’.
Second stop in Sonoma with Andrew Berge of Spell Estate, La Pitchoune and Tiny House to name a few. First up for La Pitchoune is their inaugural vintage of 'la bombe' which is their Chenin Blanc from Merritt Island. This Chenin recevied its name when Andrew and his crew would just pound these bottles, making it 'the bomb'.
Medium yellow in appearance. Savory start to the nose with some green onions or onion grass, then finishing with green apples. Medium acidity (5.5) and a light plus body. Rounded palate with some grassiness, Granny Smith apples and a touch Stoney. Easy going and a nice hint of dryness in the medium plus finish. Drink younger if you like the freshness, savory qualities will only grow with age. Drink till 2021. $ — 2 months ago
