Le Portail Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

A really gorgeous French Chenin Blanc from Vouvray.Wonderfully aromatic, full and round, with a golden colour. Notes of exotic tropical fruits, honey, & crushed gravel on the nose. The palate opens with pronounced minerality and then reveals smoky notes and a lingering finish. Truly wonderful. — 5 days ago

Great nose. Beautiful cassis and berry fruit. Some beautiful minerality. Amazingly layered and detailed. Superbly mineral and earthy and wonderful layered and deep aromas. Stunning, really. Juicy with crisp acids and so much fruit and a taut structure. Long finish that dissipates beautifully. — 6 days ago

Domaine Huet

Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Firing on all cylinders. Pure bliss. Attenuated nose due to youth...palate is honeyed, apricot, whiff of petrol, slate, jasmine, honeysuckle...truly something to behold. And a dream pairing with kolhapuri mutton. — 5 days ago

Le Peu Morier Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2012

It’s good it’s gold it’s somewhat aged but still sharp on top of honey and apple sauce but enough of an undercurrent of mineral to say “hey I’m Vouvray” so I like this one for the general scrumptious nature and...solid predictability. Goodness. It is good-ness. — 10 days ago

Pouilly-Fumé Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Ooooh I want to dance with this wine. It is nimble and graceful and yet structured enough to make you feel like it is a partner that will not drop you which is important if you are either going to a) attempt a lift or b) drink. Full of minerals and stone fruit with a lover’s bite of acid. It keeps you on your toes. — 6 days ago

Trinch Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2016

Quite vegetal at first but then it mellows into a lovely Loire CF. Exactly what you want when you pull a cork on one of these. Blackberries, raspberries, and red bell pepper along with some green tea leaves and black stone. — 7 days ago

Clean crisp light mousse. Very pale in colour but not too dry. It hits the middle of the tongue fairly hard, but softens gently. Would def buy it again for decent drinking fizz. We went crazy and had it with pizza .... bloody delicious! — 33 minutes ago

L'Enclos Savennières Chenin Blanc 2009

Rich, savory, subtly honeyed, and very nervy, with that peach/white flower/mineral character on the loooong finish. Could go longer, though I’m not sure it’s possible for anything to taste better than this. @Catherine Toner find this beauty and pay whatever they ask. — 5 days ago
