Loire Valley Chenin Blanc

Domaine Huet

Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1959

Is it possible to drink a cloud? A perfumed nose of honey and hints of caramel that never overpower but instead tickles your nasal passage . You feel it enter you mouth but instead of exploding it just expands and covers your tastebuds with incredible freshness that defies its age. Honey, apricot , salt and that chenin wax appear in a flotilla of flavors . — 5 hours ago

Love the cloud reference 😁

Domaine de Bellivière (Eric Nicolas)

Les Rosiers Jasnières Chenin Blanc

Classic Loire Chenin aromatics in all dimensions. RS accentuates the honey & apricot character in an off dry style that creates interesting tension between fruit, acid and texture. The finish surprises with slightly bitter lemon pith, leaving a very phenolic impression of a wine that is otherwise very rich and opulent. — 14 days ago

@Aravind Asok We put this vintage on closeout a few months ago. I just now got around to the last bottle. I’ll talk to our Farm rep this week. Check with us soon.

Cool, my email should be in your system. I'm also interested in the caligramme (same producer).

@Aravind Asok I’m sure we can make that happen. Current vintage at the very least. Caligramme is also a terrific wine. I hope they made it in ‘16 and ‘17- that stretch of the Loire saw some devastating frost during those years. Cheers, mate.

60 year old dry Chenin seems highly delectable-worthy. In stunning shape. Merci schatzi & mike! — 11 days ago

Domaine des Baumard

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

The Baumard family growing the noble Chenin at Rochefort in the Anjou for centuries, in 1953 they acquired a vineyard in the Quarts de Chaume, & in 1968, purchased acreage in Savennieres. Straw with full fruit and light spice aromas. On the palate ripe apple, pear & melon, complex, with vivid acidity. Lingering, ending with mineral and sweet honey character. Wow. A white that should age well.

Nice refreshing Chenin Blanc on a beautiful day. Citrus on the nose, apple and lime on the palate. Lots of acidity that just makes my mouth water for more! My first Chenin Blanc. Will definitely buy again! — 15 hours ago

Chenin is my favourite white, this one sounds great. If you find yourself drawn to Chenin definitely consider the South African wines. I think they are some of the best. Cheers 🍷

Citrus, white flowers, spice, lanolin. Nice acidity, great QPR. Only quibble is that it’s a bit dilute. — 6 days ago

Domaine du Closel-Château des Vaults

Les Caillardieres Savennières Chenin Blanc 2013

Корзина садовых яблок, мягкая груша, абрикос, лимонная цедра, мёд, подсохшая трава, воск, сырая шерсть, осенний ручей, битый камень. Полное, чуть маслянистое тело с хорошей кислотностью и аккуратной минеральной подложкой. Спело и монолитно, с кажущейся сладостью и ультратонким намеком на ботритис. При этом под всей этой массой хорошо структурно оформлено, не утомительно. Не суперкомплексно, но богато и серьезно. — 10 days ago

Domaine des Roches Neuves (Thierry Germain)

Clos du Moulin Saumur Chenin Blanc 2016

Ананас, яблоки, лимон, аккуратный нефтяной тон, сухой мед, битый камень. Средне-полное тело с фруктово-тропическим акцентом, хорошей кислотностью и уверенной, но не слишком напряженной структурой. Ещё молодо. Шлейфовая ароматика, увесистый объём, первичные акценты во вкусе. Глубоко, органично и выразительно. Чуть не хватает микродетализации и комплексности фактуры. — 15 days ago
