Accord Confidential Chenin Blanc 2010

Vintage 2010 / Tasted my last bottle of this Chenin Blanc four years ago... no signs of aging, amazingly fresh, vivid and charming. This ‘tendre’ has some wood-ripening. Beautiful smell of jasmin and vanilla. Perfect harmony and many many years to go. I love it. / Paired with a ‘Brabants worstenbroodje’ a regional specialty, a saucage bun. — 7 days ago

Your worstenbroodje looks a bit dark @Peter van den Besselaar did you set the oven temp too high 😂

Grande Reserve Vieilles Vignes Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Quite sweet, but I’m enjoying it. Almost to Riesling sweetness territory, but there’s enough interesting petrol notes and acidity to balance it out. Golden Apple, tart pear, stone fruit. Fantastic with the Chicken Thigh + caramelized onion/cinnamon/cardamom basmati rice recipe from Ottolenghi and Tamimi’s Jerusalem cookbook. — 14 days ago

Just delicious. Bloomed with air and even better on day 2-3.
Medium yellow/hints of gold. Yellow apple, floral/pollen, melon, not waxy but a bit honeyed w/ age. Impeccably balanced.

Always serious. So utterly drinkable. Beautifully mineral driven but still boasts some chenin richness. This is grand cru type stuff! — 17 days ago

Le Mont Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2016

Happy Thanksgiving!! Didn’t drink very much of this, but what I did have was very unique and tasty. Extremely rich and not much in the way of acidity. Really coats the palate with butter and cream. — 8 days ago

Manoir de la Tete Rouge

Coteaux de Saumur Chenin Blanc 2018

Different and expressive. It doesn’t have the nuance and pensiveness you can find in the world’s best Chenin. But this is still very good with ripe tropical fruits and pear. Lychee, passion fruit, buttered popcorn. Creamy, austere, moderately abrupt. — 15 days ago
