Les Bonnes Blanches Anjou Chenin Blanc 2015

Vintage 2015 / Paired with a salmon tartare with Puy lentils / beautiful smell that gives more and more while nosing and tasting. Mandarins, ananas and minerals in smell. Flint. A vague impression of honey, always characteristic for chenin blanc. Juicy taste. Very quaffable. Also good with my fish (Limande) ánd French cheese (Cantal). Makes happy. — 3 days ago

Domaine Bobinet

Du Rififi a Beaulieu Chenin Blanc

Not like the beer capped Pet Nats - not necessarily better, but different. Traditional. It’s rich and austere and elegant and has more in common with grower’s champagne. The aromas are bold with autolyse and white flowers with flavors of baked apples and bitter almonds. — 10 days ago

Domaine des Baumard

Trie Spéciale Savennières Chenin Blanc

Took time to open, but once it did, a terrific dry Chenin. Floral, honey notes with stone, straw, quince and some pleasantly sour back notes. — 10 days ago

Domaine des Baumard

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2015

In 1953, Jean Baumard acquired vineyard in Quarts de Chaume, in 1968, purchased substantial acreage in Savennieres. Today Jean’s son, Florent, manages the winery. Aromas of green fruits, floral and flinty notes. On the palate green apple, pear, melon and slight nutty flavors, well balanced with acidity. Medium+ length ending, no fluttering with fresh juicy mineral, just like the butterfly on the label! Will age well if you can resist opening. — 7 days ago

Foreau - Domaine du Clos Naudin

Réserve Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1989

Un petit plaisir de fin de soirée... wow. Des aromes tropicaux, de la peche, mangue, abricot, ananas. C’est gouleyant, sucré et sexy. Malgré le sucre bien présent, aucune lourdeur et a gardé une belle fraicheur. Un hit autour de la table. S’est vidé tres rapidement. — 18 days ago

Domaine de Bellivière (Eric Nicolas)

L'Effraie Coteaux du Loir Chenin Blanc

2015 must have been a botrytis heavy year for this bottling. Really beautiful notes of cinnamon spice, ginger and honey comb. The fruit is crystal clear, just pure. Such a great wine for a hot Lahaina day! — 4 days ago

Les Rosiers Jasnières Chenin Blanc

Vintage 2010 / golden colour, minerals and honey in smell. Surprisingly powerfull in taste. Good balance. Clearly flesh on the bones. Not an easy wine because there are vibrant bitters, a chenin blanc for tasters with an acquired CB taste. / Paired fine with Miehoen Singapore with shrimps, eggs and Tsa Sieuw pork — 9 days ago
