Loire Valley Chenin Blanc

Domaine Guiberteau

Saumur Chenin Blanc 2017

Very mineral nose with crushed rocks, a hint of smoke, hay, white flowers, petrol a bit maybe ? The palate is very good : a wide opening with white flowers and white peach, a real grip and texture that lasts and accompanies the acid backbone to the finish with white fruits. Very good but perhaps a tad under the 2015. Less complexity in the structure I guess. Still very good though — 3 days ago

This was a last minute add to the haul on a recommendation from @Todd Abrams. Dude this is spectacular. Reminds me a bit of the lychee we tried. Definitely not lacking character. One day closer to the weekend. — 13 days ago

I liked the Clos de l’Ecotards much better. Has the same golden color. Toast on the nose with some lemon peel. — 11 days ago

Volpi e l'Uva in Florence has this stuff for a very attractive price. It's a delicious sweet wine ripe for food pairings. Waxy quality, plenty of quince, golden raisin, and other semi exotic fruit. Plenty of life ahead. — a day ago

Le Clos de la Meslerie Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2013

The “sec” release from this producer has notable aromas of lime flower, honeydew, pear, hay, and honeysuckle that carry through on a similar palate that is medium in body with electric acid and a yellow apple skin feel. Beautifully balanced and a perfect match with halibut, octopus, duck(!), and wood fired kohlrabi. — 3 days ago

@Kyle Groombridge this is a different bottle. We had this at Bullion. I still have two of the Coulee de Serrant 2013. 😎

Château de Fesles Bonnezeaux Chenin Blanc 1997

Initially a bit off on the nose this blew off and opened up with air.
Needless to say that botrytized Chenin Blanc from Loire can be magical, this feel just short tonight but was still very enjoyable.

Le Mont Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1953

While celebrating my birthday of the same year. Brilliant clarity, slight peach, pear and waxy petrol aromas. Rich palate of the same, at first dry then broadened out to slight sweet richness. Persistent finish with barely a hint of oxidation. Incandescent for the couple hours that we pondered and reveled over this glass of wine! — 3 days ago
