Chenin Blanc

Les Vieux Clos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2010

Alright, so Nick wants you to decant this white on ice for roughly 45 minutes if not longer. Battonage going on, unfiltered, oak aged Chenin.. inside the bottle looks like swampwater, I LIKE IT! Keep in mind the age: the color's golden, a firm orange copper (oxidated) it just started off with rotten limes then transgressed into cleaner apricot, nectarine, honey-baked bread (dry Sauternes you would think). On top of that, the alcohol is 14.5% which is where I'm at. If you think you can party on a Wednesday, start with this. Super geeky wine.. just a little minerality like limestone or something underneath with a nice brett/barnyard/goatshit/hamster cage goin on. I tip my cap to this wine, I applaud its audacity👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 — 9 days ago

Clos de L'Échelier Dampierre Sur Loire Saumur Chenin Blanc 2013

9.5

Stunning aromas. Nobel aromas. Lemon candy, lemon zest, honeyed almonds, loads of minerals, intoxicating. The minerality is truly encompassing. Palate is full of acids, such dense and delicate fruits. So elegant and mineral. Just stunning. Exuberant and expressive. Wonderful. — 2 days ago

Kirschenmann Chenin Blanc 2015

Impressive richness mid-palate with notes of green apple and lemon, also some honey suckle. Has some mineral presence too. Great acidity but a bit thin on the nose, maybe it's the Chard glass. Will give some time to the next bottle. Outstanding example of Cali Chenin. — 11 days ago

Mesa Vineyards Chenin Blanc 2016

Ratings are biased by the logo. Again this is a wine that would fetch 91 or 92 if served blind. Crisp front with green apple and a little bit a Buttah. The middle is a little more hefty, melon and honeydew. Finish is acidic. Lots of activity going on here. Wine went well with a Caesar salad and cheese. Better when served colder and without acoutrement. Our winner of the whites during the last visit. Great QPR. — 3 days ago

9.0

A clear nose of green apple, wet wool, and musty cellar. The palate classically ripens and veers from the nose. Oxidative apples, beeswax, honey, ripe peaches, and all with excellent concentration. Sec in style, florally, rich, and authentic. A nice entry level Vouvray. — 6 hours ago

Very dry, mineral, chalky but floral Cabernet Franc rose in a way only Saumur produces. Very solid and substantial. — 7 days ago

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 1997

I saw someone else' comment on here, 97 vintage, saying 'past.' What a chump. Once again, if you are rating this wine any less than 9.2 we don't want to hear it. Keep your nit-picking sniveling mutant face away from this juice. Don't buy it. Only buy this if you respect that it says clos de la coulee de serrant on the bottle. That is by far what's happening and no one cares about your opinion. This appellation exists because your opinion is not that important. This appellation speaks louder than 99.9999% of professional careers since careers have existed. If you don't approach with respect you will be slapped and there will be no apologies. Don't buy this unless you can take the heat. STFU. — 11 days ago

Champalou

Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2016

Delicious Chenin Blanc. Refreshing, strong acidity, smooth mouthfeel, a touch sweet - but no ice wine/late harvest! - citrus, pear, honey, florals. At this price I'll stock up for those hot summer nights. — 2 days ago

Love this wine. Classic Loire of citrus zest, wet wool, exceeding minerality, and a extraordinary pairing of pate, hot baguette, and friends! — 8 days ago
