Le Portail Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

A really gorgeous French Chenin Blanc from Vouvray.Wonderfully aromatic, full and round, with a golden colour. Notes of exotic tropical fruits, honey, & crushed gravel on the nose. The palate opens with pronounced minerality and then reveals smoky notes and a lingering finish. Truly wonderful. — 10 days ago

Secateurs Swartland Chenin Blanc

Part two of my S African samples of Chenin tasting. Damn. They all have this herb-mineral-underlying-current-of-serious that underlies a tropical nature. I don’t get the honey of the Loire which is good as the acid is lower but I do get...a complexity I’ve yet to wrap my brain around but am happy to keep trying. — 15 days ago

L'Enclos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2009

Rich, savory, subtly honeyed, and very nervy, with that peach/white flower/mineral character on the loooong finish. Could go longer, though I’m not sure it’s possible for anything to taste better than this. @Catherine Toner find this beauty and pay whatever they ask. — 10 days ago

Hope Marguerite Chenin Blanc 2017

Damn perfect balance almost to the point of wanting some more excitement but why mess with what is not broken? Terrific wine. That is all. — 10 days ago

Le Peu Morier Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

It’s good it’s gold it’s somewhat aged but still sharp on top of honey and apple sauce but enough of an undercurrent of mineral to say “hey I’m Vouvray” so I like this one for the general scrumptious nature and...solid predictability. Goodness. It is good-ness. — 16 days ago

Domaine Huet

Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Firing on all cylinders. Pure bliss. Attenuated nose due to youth...palate is honeyed, apricot, whiff of petrol, slate, jasmine, honeysuckle...truly something to behold. And a dream pairing with kolhapuri mutton. — 10 days ago

The Game Reserve Chenin Blanc 2015

It surprised me. It’s got a tropical herbaceous thing. Like the tropical cocktail with just enough herb garnish to cut through whatever juice is in it. And bone dry. Do I have a metaphor for this...let’s see it is a movie that’s starts as a chick flick and then has a deep message but then still has a happy slightly cliché ending, and you’re okay with it. It’s the 13 Going on 30 of Chenins. Hop on hop in like the bunny on the bottle. — 15 days ago

Château de Fesles

Chenin Sec La Chapelle Vieilles Vignes 2014

Vintage 2014 / damned... too young. Lots of minerals, but by no means an everyone’s friend. A bit difficult, as dry #cheninblanc can be. If you store this in the cellar, keep it there for a few years. Enjoyable as aperitive now. A bit stubborn, though. // Put half a bottle in the fridge with an anti oxydation stop... now 6 days later the wine shows a bit of its potential with some honey and friendlyness. Plus 0,1 in appreciation — 18 days ago
