Brut Pétillant Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2014

Wow. Hard to describe, but so delicious. Some citrus, grapefruit, apricot, chalk, zest and marzipan. This is juicy, but not fruity. VERY mineral, really focused minerality. Can’t wait to see how this develops. Terroir speaks so clearly. — 2 days ago

@Adam Beasley Thanks! So so good- buy if you see. @Aravind Asok Good to know, I had the feeling this was in transformation. Will try not to touch my other 2 bottles for a few more years at least.

I have the reserve version, much, much older, in another of our long term aging experiments... I should check in on them at some point.

Le Haut-Lieu Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

Great zippy nose right off the bat. Bouquet of Apples, mild lime, soft round cotton notes, a little almond. Med + body, high acidity but balanced with the tangy citrus notes and good mineralogy. No lack of wet stones, almonds, pith. Med + finish. Excited to see how this develops over the next few hrs.... — 24 days ago

Deanda Vineyard "Chill Pill" Chenin Blanc 2019

Welcome newcomers to Austin - Subject to Change. They introduced two levels, an entry and a still reasonably priced higher tier. Chill Pill is the crispy sour lemon drop side of Chenin Blanc for under $25. Spends a few days on skin and some time in neutral barrels so it has a back - it’s not watery. 11.2 % ABV — 7 days ago

Le Mont Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

A rich gold colour, good balance with neither sweetness nor acidity overpowering. Le Mont is my favourite cru in the range. White fruit on the palate and decent length of maybe 10+ seconds. Nice, but I did much prefer the 2018, perhaps this has closed a bit or just vintage variation. I’ll leave the rest of the case for a year or two. — 11 days ago

Bottle Aged Reserve Swan Valley Chenin Blanc 2012

This time last week it was #DrinkChenin Day and we celebrated in the best way possible - with not 1, but 2 bottles of Aged Chenin Blanc from John Kosovich Wines in the Swan Valley 🙌

We already had the 2012 in the wine fridge, which I picked up on my Perth trip last year and the 2013 was from a recent order of a mixed pack of CB’s sold through the Vino Volta website.

It was one of those tastings where each time I had a swirl, I was like “I definitely prefer the 20__ vintage” 😂 So it’s safe to say both went down a treat. And I reckon both are still holding up so well that they’ll keep for longer too!

2012:
It’s a clear golden shade in the glass with melon, lemon honey and fresh minerality coming through on the nose with a sprinkling of sea salt. In the mouth it’s super smooth with notes of apples 🍎, pears 🍐 and citrus zest. I also reckon there’s some feijoa on the finish. YUM!

2013:
It’s a sunshine ☀️ gold colour in the glass. There’s that fresh minerality coming through on the nose alongside cut apples and sweet timber. In the mouth there’s fresh lime with toasted apple crumble that carries through to a nice lip-licking long finish. Delish!

All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy!

Le Mont Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2006

Petrol, honeysuckle, dried yellow flowers, hay. Ethereal. The lightest bit of RS. Still very alive, in fact, I’d say this is at its peak. Sad that this is my last bottle. — 18 days ago

@Aravind Asok Definitely a desert island wine for me! Perfect thing to forget about for a decade if you have the space.

Chinon Blanc Chenin Blanc 2018

Beautiful apple cider color.

Straight up mangoes. Pineapples. An effervescence in the nose that cannot be pinpointed. Almost like the spindrift of a cresting wave colored sweet with bee pollen and honey.

Honeyed lavender, citrus peel. This is a Chenin Blanc I’d bring to the beach in the heat, toss a football around, and introduce the bros to a wine that could rival, I hate to say it, a mango white claw. I mean it’s a great picnic wine, too. Or a cheese wine. But convincing bros to drink a Chenin Blanc is a challenge I will accept any day. Now if only I could get to a beach without having to wear a face mask.

It’s a bit on the sweeter side without the bubbles to round it out, but the tropical fruit notes are killer enough to hit the 9s.

Clos de l'Ecotards Saumur Chenin Blanc 2014

Vintage 2014 | Razorsharpe Chenin Blanc with minerality. Not a wine to get acquainted with the grape, it does by no means try to charm you. But for lovers of a Chenin Blanc, it is top! Nice acidity. Pure. | A lot like @Peter van den Besselaar ’s Boudignon from last week. Happy Birthday! 🎂 — 8 days ago
