Loire Valley Chenin Blanc

Domaine des Baumard

Clos du Papillon Savennières Chenin Blanc 2014

In 1953, Jean Baumard acquired vineyard in Quarts de Chaume, in 1968, purchased substantial acreage in Savennieres. Today Jean’s son, Florent, manages the winery. Aromas of green fruits, floral and flinty notes. On the palate green apple, pear, melon and slight nutty flavors, well balanced with acidity. Medium+ length ending with a juicy mineral character. Tasting Sample. — a day ago

Dry, but honeyed textural and rich. Mouthwatering Chenin with lots of character (read: “earthiness”) keep for the pro-drinkers. — 10 days ago

Moulin Touchais

Coteaux du Layon Chenin Blanc 1981

A beautifully rounded and fully developed Loire sticky that ain’t so sticky...but just right! Fresh, beautifully balanced exotic fruit and a clear beam of acidity, earthy chalk. Soul of a dry white. — 4 days ago

Le Rocher des Violettes (Xavier Weisskopf)

Touche-Mitaine Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

First time drinking Xavier’s wines and I’m really impressed. Stone fruit, apricot, peach, pineapple, white flowers...and continues to open with air and comes up to temp. Really delicious and reminds me a bit of Sandlands Chenin.
