Honeybunch Reserve Chenin Blanc 2017

My first Chenin from South Africa, and my first time with this producer. Smells of baked apple and beeswax with a touch of honeysuckle aromatics and rich lemon oil. It’s viscous yet acidic. Bold. Touch of honeycomb sweetness with white peach, tart stone fruits and Granny Smith apple crisps notes on the palate. Delicious! Thanks to my buddy @David L for this! On the hunt to get more! — 2 days ago

Les Chanteaux Chinon Chenin Blanc 2016

I love an aged Loire Chenin Blanc..drinking this a bit on the young side but still very enjoyable!
Deep honey gold in color...overripe pear..honey..tropical fruits..soft minerals and grass! This Chinon is just starting to show the wooly characteristics that I love in an aged Chenin Blanc. Fruit dominates...almost sweet!

Limestone Ridge at Vista Verde Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2017

Catching up on a large review backlog - enjoyed this with some salmon and wild rice on the patio when the weather was a little warmer. Crisp with notes of melon, pear, and some floral. — 4 months ago

Domaine des Baumard

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Really like this Wine. The Baumard family growing the noble Chenin at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, in 1953 they acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, & in 1968, purchased acreage in Savennieres. Straw with full fruit and light spice aromas. On the palate ripe apple, pear & melon, complex, with vivid acidity. Lingering, ending with mineral and sweet honey character. Wow. A white that should age well. Had this 9 months ago, even better now!! — 7 days ago

Les Bournais Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

We can’t get enough of top shelf chenin these days. 3 hour decant, tasting as it slowly unfolds from cellar to room temp. Palate is where this shines, a real shapeshifter. Beeswax, lanolin, jasmine, finishes like a sunset—dips out of sight and leaves you with a beautiful afterglow. — 6 days ago

Domaine de la Taille aux Loups

Les Hauts de Husseau Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2016

Absolutely lovely. Both viscous and linear, crystalline yet dense. Much more classic Chenin profile than the Clos Michet, this is showing only a slightly reductive flinty top note. Everything else is pure Chenin. Awfully Vouvray-like. — 13 days ago

Jurassic Park Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2016

I’ve had Jurassic Park Chenin from a handful of producers and I really like Jeff Fischer’s version. It’s dry Chenin in the shadow of, maybe, Huet dry Chenin. Creamy and acidic, fruity, floral, and spiced. Peaches, white flowers, and baking spices upfront. It picks up body from the lees and some time in oak. — 4 days ago

Sandlands

Amador County Chenin Blanc 2015

Medium green gold in glass. The nose is ripe Amalfi lemon with a hint of lime. A bit more weight on the mouth than expected, but smooth and lively on the swallow... and amazing complexity of tart citrus and cream. These wines always bring a smile to my face and a lift to my spirit. Kudos, Tegan. — 7 days ago

Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Totally delightful. An off-dry delight that quenched my thirst and stoked my thirst for Chenin for life. Grinnin’ for Chenin? Nice balance of apples n pears and lanolin. Not exceedingly expressive when really cold so make it dinner, caress it’s punt and wait for it to open up. — 10 days ago
