Les Cocus Anjou Chenin Blanc 2018

Matté
9.1

Some decent complexity in the nose, quite iodine, smoky with some sushi seaweed along with stewed apple, orchard floor, orange blossom, manuka honey & honey comb.
Palate has plenty of that rich, baked red apple, again some orange butters and lemon zest with some ginger on the warming finish. Quite rich in style and lacking a bit acidic structure, the hot 2018 vintage shows here. Maybe not one to age for more than 5 or so years.

Domaine des Sablonnettes (Christine & Joel Ménard)

Le P'tit Blanc Anjou Chenin Blanc 2018

Elegant, classy champagne hue like I’m at a gala, but, let’s be real, it’s probably a B-list affair.

Asian pear, chalky, lemon pepper essence, no joke.

Excellent carbonation. Reserved, fine bubbles.

Definitely getting the asian pear, but also a slight undertone of licorice, and then finally some nice sweetness and acidity reminiscent of yuzu.

Wonderfully complex and fun to drink like a stimulating chess game is fun to play. I can’t stop, this one might become a go-to.

100% Chenin Blanc. The more time it spent open, the better the taste. Time allowed this wine to better reflect its true characteristics: round, off-dry & a touch of sweetness. Cheers🍷 — 2 days ago

Clos du Bourg Sec Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2018

Sea shells and ocean mist, creamed peaches with nice acid in the very back of the palate. Light weight and low ABV make for a wonderful summer wine. — 9 days ago

Lemon, sweet Meyer lemon, lemon cake, almond paste, minerals upon minerals, so clean and exuberant. Fresh and lively with intense lemon and lime fruit and some terrific green apple. Juicy and so clean. So much acid and grip. Balanced and long. Finishes salty. — 13 days ago

Trie Spéciale Savennières Chenin Blanc 1995

Gorgeous, mineral-infused, rich, dry aged Chenin Blanc, shows some honeyed notes that linger into the long, complex finish. I believe this may be at peak, but hoping it will hold a few years since I still have more from a case purchased on original release!! — 14 days ago
