Saumur Chenin Blanc 2015

9.5

it’s like Grand Cru Chablis except it’s Chenin. Smells like super great Dauvissat initially. Green Apple and tons of mineral. One of those wines that smells stuffed to the gills just by the nose, but you know it is holding out. Almost some green pea as well. No wax. No almonds. Clean nuts if that makes sense. This is new wavey Chenin like Guiberteau. Palate is just electric but is more Chenin than the nose with its feral fruit energy and vibe but also it has a Rieslingesque cleanliness to it. Dirty Chenin is one of my pet peeves. This is clan as a whistle. Like a cross between Guiberteau and Dauvissat. Dense, chewy, structured and deep. So clean and pure and length that does not quit. What poise and structure. But a lovely finesse and breed as well. This is sappy and dense as can be and one can crunch through the structure. Stunning purity and what a wonderful new expression of Chenin. Saumur is the place. — 2 days ago

Kirschenmann Chenin Blanc 2015

Refined, bright and elegant. Stone fruit, with floral and citrus nose. Palate is dry and lush. Just sipping this tonight, and will save it for some food pairing tomorrow. Any suggestions on pairings? — 4 days ago

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 1987

На старте в первом носе немного странные химические тона хлорки и чистящих средств, которые позже сглаживаются и проходят. За ними проступают ноты саке, джина, можжевельника, крупной соли, тончайшая ацетоновая летучка, незрелый белый персик, сухая цедра лайма, мелкие белые цветы, полынь. Среднее тело с уверенной кислотностью. Стройно, в меру напряжённо, почти вертикально, с бодрым тонусом и не совсем типичной органолептикой. Больше интересно, нежели очаровательно. — 6 days ago

Clos de la Bergerie Savennières Roche aux Moines Chenin Blanc 1982

Абрикосы, шиповник, жёлтая черешня, оливки, жареные семечки, заветренный мёд, воск, горькие травы, порох, сухие битые камни. Эфирный нос, маслянистое тело. Красиво развито, в уверенной форме, увесисто, но не тяжело, с глубиной и объёмом. — 6 days ago

Light golden yellow. Lots of citrus notes on the nose, minerality, white flowers and a little pepper touch. Medium plus acidity (6.5/10) and medium bodied. Solid minerality on the palate with lemon zest, stone fruits and a little floral. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2023. — a day ago

Saumur Blanc Chenin Blanc 2012

Light gold colour with aromas of nuts, apricots and lots of lemon curd on this one. A great mouth feel with mineral creaminess. Extremly balanced and lingers long. A sophisticated wine from a very talented wine maker! — 8 days ago

9.2

Classic Chenin from a top producer. Lemon, bruised apple, wet wool, it's a bit drier than a typical Vouvray but that's Foreau's style. Still has softer edges than a Savennieres. — 3 days ago
