Loire Valley Chenin Blanc

François Chidaine

Les Bournais Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

We can’t get enough of top shelf chenin these days. 3 hour decant, tasting as it slowly unfolds from cellar to room temp. Palate is where this shines, a real shapeshifter. Beeswax, lanolin, jasmine, finishes like a sunset—dips out of sight and leaves you with a beautiful afterglow. — 9 days ago

Les Chanteaux Chinon Chenin Blanc 2016

I love an aged Loire Chenin Blanc..drinking this a bit on the young side but still very enjoyable!
Deep honey gold in color...overripe pear..honey..tropical fruits..soft minerals and grass! This Chinon is just starting to show the wooly characteristics that I love in an aged Chenin Blanc. Fruit dominates...almost sweet!

Green apples, ginger, and baking spices. Nice medium bubbles w lively action. Crisp and delicious. Great Sunday night sparkler (as my wife said, “screw Monday”). #wisdom — 2 days ago

Domaine de la Taille aux Loups

Les Hauts de Husseau Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2016

Absolutely lovely. Both viscous and linear, crystalline yet dense. Much more classic Chenin profile than the Clos Michet, this is showing only a slightly reductive flinty top note. Everything else is pure Chenin. Awfully Vouvray-like. — 16 days ago

Vignobles Lacheteau

Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Totally delightful. An off-dry delight that quenched my thirst and stoked my thirst for Chenin for life. Grinnin’ for Chenin? Nice balance of apples n pears and lanolin. Not exceedingly expressive when really cold so make it dinner, caress it’s punt and wait for it to open up. — 13 days ago

Domaine des Baumard

Savennières Chenin Blanc 2016

Really like this Wine. 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. Had this 9 months ago, even better now!! — 10 days ago

Château d'Epiré

Cuvée Spéciale Savennières Chenin Blanc 2006

Whoa... day 2 and I’ve changed my mind about this. Unremarkable on day 1. Now it’s exploding with candied lemon, beeswax and diesel. — 6 days ago
