As usual, this is a very good rendition. Nose has crisp apple and lemon-lime fruit, high-toned powdered stone, and a meadow flower note. So lively. Intense and vibrant in the mouth. There is a ton of crisp, ripe fruit, zingy acids, limestoney minerality. Floods the mouth with flavors and aromas. Round-textured at the same time. Long finish. Really fine. In 375. — 9 days ago
short breaths will engulf you in all things lime: juice, zest, aid, ice ~ but then deeper breaths allow a spectrum including Granny Smith and Golden Delicious, tonic, minerals, blossoms, rainbow sherbet and orange marmalade resting atop shortbread
it’s like a mix of citrus juices with peach and mango nectar ~ simultaneously sharp acidity and minerality with a nearly creamy sensation ~ perplexing yet ultimately enjoyable — 21 days ago
If my house had a “by the glass” program, this would be on it. All melon and flint. Understated in the right way with an acid tattoo. — 7 days ago
Pretty incontestably considered to be the very best Sancerre, and it did indeed show its singularity. It’s intensely tropical and perfumed with a waxy and weighty texture. Shows ripe tropical fruit, banana, lilies, savory herbs and a touch of alcohol but it doesn’t detract and subsides with air. It’s exceptionally deep and has such presence on the midpalate with great cut and a seamless transition to finish. There is so much material here and it clearly is built to age, and definitely needs plenty of time in the decanter as it showed best after 2 hours. — 20 days ago
Le Bouchet is an amazing value Chenin Blanc grown within the Vouvray appellation, but vinified across the river in Montlouis. It was made by Francois Chidaine with a vintage of 2014 and an ABV of 13.5%. It was $25 at @thomasliquors 🙌🙌
👁 It has a deep golden hue.
👃 On the nose, this wine has a medium(+) intensity of developing aromas, including notes of desiccated apple, bruised yellow pear, lemon curd, chalk, wet stone, dried white flowers, and honeycomb. The aromas are concentrated.
👄On the palate this wine is dry with notable residual sugar (possibly off-dry), it has medium(+) acidity, a medium(+) body due to the richness of the texture, medium alcohol, and a medium(+) intensity of flavors consistent with the nose, although with brighter citric influences. The finish is medium.
This wine has complexity; it's concentrated; it's for the cerebral type. I could see it pairing well with a variety of salads and cheeses and/or a pork roulade; we’re pairing it tonight with an herbed, grilled chicken, grilled bell peppers, and roasted asparagus.

Aromas of exotic white fruits with nice minerality. Semi sweet with tons of flavour. Good as an aperitif or with spicy food. — 13 days ago
