Remus Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

Honey, nuts, pear, hay, sage, apple, buttery brioche, piercing acidity. Flint and clay over chalk subsoil. “Rémus is made from a second, slightly later harvest through Clos de Mosny, from 50- to 80-year-old vines. Spontaneous fermentation takes place in barrels in his cool underground cellar (which has an ambient temperature of about 12 °C/54 °F) with absolutely no intervention, so fermentation is very slow, taking anything from four to nine months. The wine doesn’t undergo malolactic conversion (Jacky believes that malic acid gives the wines a spine), there is no bâtonnage and no added sulphites during élevage. It then spends 12 months in new (about 10%), one-, two- and three-year-old barrels.” I figure oaky Chenins are growing on me... — a month ago

Chuggable summer sparkling. Not overbearing in terms of acidity, yeast etc but still bright with very fine bubbles — 5 months ago

Clos Michet Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2014

Flinty. Honey. Big acid. I think I prefer the clos mosny bottling, but this is very good. — 9 months ago

Montlouis-sur-Loire Clos Michet Chenin Blanc 2018

Pushing the rich end of the Chenin spectrum with aromas of peaches, apricots, vanilla and coconut custard. The palate is mildly oaky with some sweetness. Chewy. Opulent.

But this also has the quality of hot stones and bitter almond on the finish. Promising but needs more time to develop and settle into its richness. Not a lot of freshness to carry it now. These bottlings seem to hit their stride after 3-4 years.

Les Hauts de Husseau Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

Dark gold colour. A nose of fairly ripe apples and pears, sea salt with that salinity on the palate too, fairly wide and yet mineral wine, some nice richness and yet good energy also, long finish and delicious bottle, that gives you a lot at this price point. 91-92

Couleur or foncée. Nez de pommes assez mures, poires, sel de mer et un peu de salinité au nez comme en bouche pour ce vin délicieux, minéral, assez large, riche avec un certain gras, énergique aussi, long en bouche et qui en donne beaucoup à ce prix. Magnifique 91-92
