Clos Habert Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2015

Vintage 2015 | off dry Chenin Blanc with excellent balance and a smell that reveals new impressions every time you take the glass to your nose: honey and minerals are prominent | often a wine really expresses itself in combination with food. This Clos Habert is perfect with the peppery rilettes of local star butcher Jean Maurice Lejeune. Second day, with ham in aspic — 10 days ago

Nouveau Nez Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2018

Delectable Wine
9.2

Pétillant natural made from 100% Chenin Blanc. Thick creamy mousse. Such a sunny, happy nose, notes of morning toast with apricot jam, touch of honey. Bright and lively on the palate, with great dancing acidity throughout, with layers of nuttiness and minerality leading to a lingering, stony finish. (Jason Wilson, Vinous, July 2020)

Les Bournais Franc de Pied Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2017

Delectable Wine
9.5

Also from the Le Bournais plot, but from 20 specific rows of ungrafted grapes. The volume has been turned up on flavors and aromas here. The fragrant nose reveals notes of grilled herb, beeswax and honey, and smokiness and saltiness carry through the dense palate into a long mineral finish. Fresh, powerful and ageworthy.

Les Tuffeaux Montlouis-sur-Loire Chenin Blanc 2018

Insanely aromatic, thick nose of chamomile, lanolin and the color spectrum of peaches. On the palate tutti-frutti basket with everything from white cherry to oranges. Thank you to the somms that let me interlope on their blinding session today, and sneak a slurp of this magical stuff. — 22 days ago

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

Nice nose of white fruit, apples and some honey. The wine shows a nice minerality, freshness and elegance with a good tension, purity of fruit, balance and delicious. Nice value and a good change from Chard. 90-91

Nez de fruits blancs, pomme, un peu de miel. Bouche avec une belle minéralité, fraîcheur et élégance, acidité avec une belle tension appuyée, fruit pur, équilibrée et savoureuse. Bon rapport QP.
