Les Cerisier Coteaux du Layon St Aubin Chenin Blanc 1995

Vintage 1995 - there is Coteaux du Layon that is so lovely it is overwhelming charming to the taster, and there is Coteaux du Layon where you need to fight to discover its qualities. With its 22 years this is an example of the second type. Shy smell, almonds, vanilla, spicy, not complete in balance as there are prominent bitters in taste. Also honey tones after aeration. Drank it with a ricotta cake that had beautiful citrus in it that matched well with the wine. #coteauxdulayon #cheninblanc #loire #aged beautiful golden colour. — 2 days ago

Silex Noir Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2015

Pale gold on the color. Moderate+ viscosity. Lots of ripe yellow apples, pears, white peaches, orange zest, slight botrytis and honey. Dry, pretty high acidity, almost tart apple and lemon, good minerals. The palate is very different from the nose. Very balanced and moderate+ finish. Absolutely love it! — 10 days ago

My first Savennieres, hopefully not the last. Wonderful balance of pear, lemon rind, wet stone, and a bright acidity. Aromatics are stunning! Pairing with mojito lime chicken and baked cauliflower rice. — 6 days ago
