Quarts de Chaume Chenin Blanc 2003

Opening this was our version of a “brilliant mistake”. Have a few of these in my cellar and @ADAM STROMFELD said pull it, it’s probably gone! So much for that. Absolutely no signs of oxidation. A baby at 15 years. This not only has another 15, it most likely has another 30 years ahead. Fresh honeycomb, dried apricot simmered in Sauternes, earthy minerals, hints of Burgundian washed rind cheese, dried golden berries, fresh baguette, dried pineapple, marzipan. Really nice acidity and lingering finish. So complex and just getting started. Love what really good chenin can do. Was even better on day 2 (pushing 9.6 for me) Looking forward to opening another bottle at my retirement party! — 2 days ago

Clos de la Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc 2014

Cocktail hour at Christie's hosted by the Friends of Notre Dame in the effort to help raise money for the cathedral's restoration. The wines were artfully curated by @Noah May. First up was this beguiling Chenin Blanc that was golden in color and burst with peaches, orange peel and spice cake. Its richness coats the mouth. A fascinating wine. — 11 days ago

L'esprit Libre Anjou Chenin Blanc 2014

Chenin can be hit or miss. This chenin had amazing depth of flavor you normally don’t get. Great acid, lemon, and pallet cleansing acidity. Will get the rest of the stock. — 11 days ago

Te Arai Vineyard Chenin Blanc 2014

Tropical and Apricot notes. Some creaminess. A little barrel ferment character. I think NZ does better Chenins than we do in Oz. Would be good to taste comparison with NZ WA South Africa and Loire Valley. This wine is delicious and a definite crowd pleaser. — 3 days ago

Les Vieux Clos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2007

Awake after a long, mute slumber, and fully rested and ready to go. Rich, honeyed, herbal, and compelling. A few years ago, this seemed over the hill, oxed beyond hope, a baked apple mess. Today, however, is the first day of the rest of a long life for this bottle of exceptional Savennieres. If you don't 'get' these wines, just wait. Wow. — 8 days ago

Steen Op Hout Western Cape Chenin Blanc 2015

To celebrate my kitchen remodel I chose this Chenin Blanc which I don’t normally drink but am enjoying. It has a little floral to it which is not something I usually like but it’s not overwhelming. Very crisp, semi dry with a hint of lemon. — 2 days ago

Les Ardoisieres Coteaux de l'Aubance Chenin Blanc 2015

Opera night, at our favorite French restaurant and enjoying this amazing Chenin with halibut in a red sauce with leeks and fiddle-heads. The nose is typically cloying as most Chenins are and displays caramel, oak and vanilla that transitions into a lovely palate of hay, new oak, quince and lime zest. Love it. — 10 days ago

Brut Vouvray Chenin Blanc

Lovely bubbles. Not as many biscuit notes as Champagne but still a little bit of yeast. Mostly pears and lemons. 🍐 🍋 — 11 days ago
